Arriving in a bolt of light with beauty wit and charm

Cradled to their family’s breast where they never came to harm

Striving to be something while always seeing love

Beautiful young flowers, gentle like a dove

They’ll be forever laughing bathed in a summer moon

It wasn’t that they hadn’t lived

They just left us far too soon

 

Life’s a great adventure grabbed with eager hands

Like an everlasting summer day of blue oceans and golden sands

Striving to be something while all the time they are

Striking out on life’s great path without ever going far

They’ll be forever dancing in the summertime in June

It wasn’t that they hadn’t lived

They just left us far too soon

 

We weep upon their leaving and grieve that they have gone

But rejoice that they have been here and know that they live on

In the memories of all they knew where they will forever stay

Like everlasting flowers growing brighter every day

They’ll be forever singing golden melodies in tune

It wasn’t that they hadn’t lived

They just left us far too soon
