FOREVER NEAR
As sure as there is a sky above
And the earth below
The dear ones we’ve lost
Are with us I know

Their spirits are near us
Like that of God
Only their heavenly bodies
Are under the sod

Just speak to them
With endearing words
And they’ll fly to you faster
Than all of the birds

Their presence you’ll feel
With a warmth in your heart
And you will know they were with you
Right from the start

So pray each day
That you may be good
And receive all their blessings
The way that you should

Never start to doubt
God’s wondrous ways
And you’ll be happy
Through all of your days!
