Although you are gone,
I cannot feel great sorrow for you,
you left this world,
to go to the next.
To be with your love,
and all those passed before you.
Although I'll miss you, and my heart will be heavy,
I know that you are happy,
free from age,
free from earthly wants and needs.
You can join her into eternal light.
Although tears will be shed,
and the family will hurt,
they will remember you,
through their stories,
They're going to laugh at all the little jokes you said.
Although you're gone,
I know elements of you are still here.
I don't believe in heaven,
but if there is such a thing,
I know you would be there.
