We did not know that morning
What sorrow the day would bring,
The bitter grief and shock severe
To part with the one we love so dear.
You bid no one a last farewell
No chance to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it
Only God knows why.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Though your smile is gone forever
And your hand we cannot touch,
We will never lose the memory,
Of the one we love so much.
