My mother's hair was silver,
my daddy's hair was gray,
their love for me was golden;
I miss them still today.
The years have fled behind me;
they died so long ago,
but in my heart they ever live
and always will, I know.
Until the time I too shall leave
and journey up above,
inside my heart they'll stay
in strong, enduring love.
I know the day shall soon
when God will take me Home,
where I am sure they wait for me
around God's heavenly throne.
We'll have a glad reunion,
my Mom, my Dad, and me,
and then we'll be together
for all eternity.
