A heart of gold stopped beating

two shinning eyes at rest

God Broke our hearts to prove

He only takes the best

God knows you had to leave

but you did not go alone

for part of us went with you

the day he took you home

To some you are forgotten

to others just part of the past

but to us who loved and lost you

the memory will always last.
