Though time seems short and hearts do grieve
The loss of one we love.
And though we mourn and wish him here
He's now with God above.
Fear not this loss, hold back your tears
He sits at Jesus' feet.
Some day, dear ones, when time has passed
Again his soul we'll greet.
For now, take heed, bring forth a smile
Remember all times past.
He watches us from high above
And rests in peace at last.
