You're not so far away

on the other side of the veil.

I call you and you come

and love and light prevail.


Even though you're not here

and I miss you so

I know you're in my heart

and you didn't want to go.


Things have happened over the years

I know you've seen them all.

Cheered me on when I've triumphed

and picked me up when I fall.


So thank you for watching over me.

Guiding me with your powerful light.

I wish you were still with me,

wish with all my might.


But I know you're at peace now.

And I'm thankful that you rest.

I am grateful you were in my life,

knowing you I was blessed.


So even though the veil is thin

I think of you every day

you're in my mind and thoughts

and in my heart you'll always stay.
