Her Journeys just begun
Don’t think of her as gone away
Her journey has just begun
Life has so many faces
The earth is just one
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrow and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think of how she must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost
And she was loved so much
