The first time they laid you in my arms
You were so small and precious
The perfect gift from above
And in an instant I fell in love

From a girl to a woman
I would watch you grow
It was perfect plan, you know
But I didn’t realize
Just how it would happen so fast
I just wish that I could go
Back and relive the past

For the plan I once had
Would no longer be
When God called you home
I felt so all alone
The day we had to part
Left a big hole in my heart

Now everyday I wake and cry
For I never had the chance to say goodbye
Then I think of your laugh and smile
And know I will see it again
In just a short while
I often speak your name
Now all I have are memories
And your picture in a frame

Your memory is my keepsake
With which we will never part
God has you in his keeping
I have you in my heart
I will miss you
And think of you with love
And know that you are with
Our loved ones though
I mean your ancestors
