When you read this - please know

That I am not alone.

I have walked with Him

Yesterday, today and

I will walk with Him tomorrow

When you read this - please know

That an angel came to me

He beckoned me to go.

I hate to leave you -

But I love Him so.

When you read this - please know

That you may weep a little

‘Cause you will miss me.

But don’t mourn for long

‘Cause I hear that beautiful song.
