I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a Keepsake from which I'll never part.
God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart.
