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,
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.
Bubble, Pudney, Poppy & Muscles
