The Eternal Family Circle
In a ring like a circle
Our family, nothing could break
We had no Idea it was you
That God had on his list "next to take"
A faith in God you kept so strong
All throughout the years
As others watched you, their example
To their unfaithful eyes came tears.
Never once complaining
Never saying "oh God, why me?"
Taking in all the pain
That no one else could see.
With a headache we will whimper
With a toothache one will cry
But no matter what happened to you
I don't remember even hearing a sigh.
You coughing at night reassured me
That you were feeling "OK".
It let me know that you were here
And I'd see you the next day.
You never questioned God
You simply accepted his rules
And no matter how helpless someone seemed
You never dared to call people fools.
You were like my earthly angel
Watching over me silently
And no matter what we did
You always loved your family.
Even though your not here now
We keep you in our hearts.
We know we'll see you in heaven
When it's our turn to depart.
Walking the white staircase
Through the pearly gates
You can hear the angels singing
A big bright smile is on your face.
Someday we can join you
And our circle will remain
But till we get to heaven
Our memories will help the pain.
You'll never be forgotten
We certainly will miss you
We know that you loved us
And you knew that we loved you.
A circle can't be broken
It goes on eternally.
And although we no longer see you
You're still part of this family.
And as much as we all love living,
And remembering you in our own way
We can't wait for God to come get us
So we can see you again someday.
