Even though I wanted to see you so.

And your enclosures of life became a tomb.

But you are still a part of our family,
And we all love you; siblings, daddy and me.

I await the day when I shall see you again,
When my life ends, and the others sing requiem.
I pray I'll be in heaven, and there I'll come see you,
Where you, my little angels, play under skies so blue.
