We'll Always Remember You

Absent From The Body

You have served your time
and lived out your days.
You have now made the move
from your house of clay.

You went on ahead of us,
as you answered the call.
We, too, must take our leave,
not just some of us, but all.

We can no longer see you,
but we can feel you near.
You are hidden in our hearts,
and we'll always hold you dear.

We can no longer hear you,
but we will keep you close.
The memories of you are many,
and the love will not grow old.

We can no longer touch you,
but thoughts of you remain.
We remember your kindness
and the love we exchanged.

You are absent from the body;
it has now returned to the dust.
But your spirit lives on
and will reunite with us.
