Shadows move across faces of people you knew
They’re full of sorrow, but the sun shines through.
If you hear the ringing the bells that shine within
Don’t fear, your light has not gone out.
Just walk right in.
There’s a crystal at the heart of every tear
What your future holds, you may not fear….
You are ascending to the stars
Where you’ll see beauty ringing clear.
There’s still an open door through which
we have not passed
You’ll never be a memory for your soul lives
on forever
With everyone who loved and knew you ….as I did
