Dearest Father, you have left. And our loss we deeply feel. All is dark within our swelling. Lonely are our hearts today. For the one we love so deeply, Has forever passed away. Whether of joy or sadness. And each must have his share. Time brings its vivid happenings. For all we must prepare. No one exempt from trouble.
