I thought of you today,
But that is nothing new.
I thought of you yesterday,
And the day before that, too.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.
All I have are memories
And a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake,
From which I’ll never part,
God has you in His arms,
But I have you in my heart.
