We didn't get to say goodbye the day you went away. The angels came and called you home, you had no time to stay, no time to hug us all farewell. Such goodbyes were not allowed. We don't know if others feel the way we do, we know you're standing proud, as we stay up through the night waiting for a whisper, or just a sound. We wish you peace and happiness, with angels all around. Please forgive the tears we cry because you're not around. For we know we will meet again because our LOVE is true. And we will wait on the trumpets sound.
