Auntie
I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.
I just keep wishing you were still here.
I will hold all the memories deep in my heart.
Through these memories will never part.
I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.
I just keep wishing this pain would just disappear.
I didn’t get the change to say my last good-bye.
I didn’t get the chance to share my daughter with you.
I just didn’t think you could ever die.
I close my eyes as I wipe a tear.
For all of your love I will always hold near.
In my heart and in my mind I will never be alone.
Life is too sort, it’s not enough,
But we must understand,
That if we live it in love and faith,
a road will be made,
For the day when we pass away,
We can take it and wait at the end,
For those who once and always loved me, I will meet.
Your beautiful eyes, so big and round,
Showed love, showed laughter, showed happiness, and showed sadness,
But we will remember you as the happy beautiful woman you were,
The one who once cried for love,
The one who once laughed,
I love you auntie, we will miss you,
But please wait, we will meet once again,
In the kingdom of heaven, where we will feel no more pain.
Love always and forever ~ Dalas Rogers.
