We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
And the day before that too!
We think of you in silence,
We often think 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 heart.
