Never Forgotten

Three years ago I said goodbye
When you left this earth too soon
You slipped away that quiet night into God's hands
Past the stars and sky and moon

I couldn't know what it would mean
The day I walked away
And realized I would not see your face
But I had no choice that day

Your spirit flew to Eternal joy
Past sunsets, clouds and rain
I tried so hard to tell myself
You were released from all that pain

Yet I cannot forget the man
Who cared when others turned away
You brought the sunshine and the hope
That lightened up my day

Well, maybe you aren't here with me
You've gone where angels fly
But one day I'll find you forever more
And there will be no more sad goodbyes
