Goodbye - Tribute To My Aunt Penny

Goodbye - A Tribute to My Aunt Penny

As God's greatest gift

Become life's greatest sorrow

Today's precious moment

Turn into tears of tomorrow

But while our hearts grow heavy

Grief-stricken and weary

We know that with time

The dark skies will be clearing

as Heavens gates

Welcome a familiar face

God's glorious light will forever shine upon you

And as your ashes rest peacefully here on earth

Your soul will live eternally

In an angelic re-birth

Aunt Penny i miss you

I still tear at the sound of your name

But I take solace in knowing

That one day we will meet again

I know that you are watching over me

From your place up in the clouds

My heart is still healing

With each night a new day

I know that you are with me

Guiding each step i take

And I can only hope that what you see

That my life will make you proud.
