Family Tree

A limb has fallen from the family tree
I hear a voice that whispers,
‘Grieve not for me’
Remember the best times, the laughter, the songs
The good I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you
Keep on smiling, the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease. My soul is at rest
Remembering all how I was truly blessed
Continue traditions, no matter how small
Go on with your lives, don’t stare at the wall
I miss you all dearly so keep up your chin
Until that fine day we’re together again.
