We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
We think of you in silence, we often speak your name.
Now all we have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake, with which we'll never part.
God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts.
You will never be forgotten, you will always be loved too.
Mom will be waiting in heaven, to wrap her arms around you.
Dale Gaines
In our hearts forever
