We remember you
A tribute for all the loved ones who have lost their lives during this awful pandemic Covid 19
Although you are not in physical form today
You live on with love in our hearts
Thoughts of you make flowers bloom every day
As angels come to visit us.
Much beauty you left behind
A gift for our family from you
We miss you being with us but please, do not worry
We promise to see you again one day.
While the sun rises and sets everyday
Fond memories of you come to mind
Always with a radiant, smiling face, bright sparkling eyes.
In darkness, candlelight glows on your picture.
As brothers and sisters love each other
We hold you close, in our human family
A victim of Corona, so much harder to bear your departure
We miss you being near.
No longer can you see the beauty of summer flowers here
But observe the beauty of mother Earth from above
The many wreaths placed as tribute from bereaved children
Observing our tears of loss.
In a dream I see your smiling face
In the blue sky, with moonlight and twinkling stars
You are waving to say good bye
Remain in peace, my dear.
