Precious is your memory,
It hurts to hear your name;
I've grown to realize daily,
my life won't be the same.

Although I know in heaven,
there is no pain or grief.
My heart it just can't grasp it,
It hurts beyond belief.

But as I look to heaven,
beyond the clouds and sky,
I know to wipe away the sorrow
because this is not goodbye.
