Together Again

My children, when you come to visit here,
And bring a rose to lay upon my stone,
Come not in grief, donít shed a single tear,
Because from you I have not really gone.
Be happy in your heart and look for me
In every gentle whisper of the wind,
For there upon its wings Iíll always be,
As memory recalls a loving friend.

Oh earthly time how fleeting is its face,
How rugged is the road you four must trod,
But when you reach the ending of your race,
You'll live in peace with Dad and me, and God.

My darling dears, remember with a smile,
And know we'll be together in a while.
