We watched you suffer, we watched you sigh,

But all we could do, was just stand by.

When the time came, we suffered too;

For you never deserved what you went through.

God took your hand and we had to part;

He eased your pain but broke our hearts.

If you could have spoken before you died,

These are the words you would have replied;

“This life for me has truly passed,

I have loved you to the very last;

Weep not for me, but courage take;

And love each other for my sake.”
