Love Lives On

Those we love remain with us,

for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade;
because one loved is gone.

Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory
they live on in our heart.
Think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost,
and she was loved so much.

Hold onto what is good

Hold onto what is good
Even if it is a handful of Earth

Hold onto what you believe
Even if it is a tree that stands by itself

Hold onto life
Even if it seems easier to let go

Hold onto my hand
Even if I have gone away from you

We love you.
