We were not ready for this day,
We are not prepared in any way.
We were not ready to set him free,
And when I cry, I cry for me.
In our lives I feel a space,
And in our hearts an empty place.
In our family, he was the rock,
He was the shepherd of the flock.
Lord, please help us not to be forlorn.
Let us rejoice his life story,
Remember him and all his glory.
