Do not cry my mother,
I have not left you.
Just for awhile gone from your sight,
But I'm near, closer than ever before,
I am with you. Trust me. Trust God.

Life is but a journey,
One of us was destined to travel a little further,
But I wait for you my dear one
And our happiness will reach all bounds,
Greater than we ever knew.
