“When the sun rises, we think of you.
When it sets, we do too.
The stars at night bring you through,
At this time, we can talk to you.
You will be forever in our hearts,
This is the love that never parts.
The time has gone so very fast.
Our love for you will forever last.
We are missing you each and every day.
Our memories of you will always stay.”
