Laid to Rest

Now I’m laid to rest
I know through my life I did my best

I shed a silent tear as I look around
From heaven to all my loved ones on the ground

I’ll miss you all so very much
I wish I could have, one last touch

A kiss, a hug, a tender look
One last page from my life’s book

I know I’ll miss you all now we’re apart
My legacy to you was love from my heart

Miss me a little when I cross your mind
My wish is that your thoughts of me are kind.

I‘ll watch and wait for you all
Hoping that you take your time before you call

Bye for now and remember my last kiss
For it’s you and your love that I’ll miss.
