You showed me how to walk, and trust
To hold my head up high –
When all around me, things went wrong
You held me tight, ‘til all was calm!
You showed me how to grin, and bear
When in despair I went.
You taught me how to smile again
When death rolled in, and took a soul!
Now life’s moved on, and toll it’s took
On how you lived your life,
When all you gave to us, your heart
Your love, so sweet divine!
A year’s now past, and through its taught
Me how to carry on –
With such sweet love, my family for
In honour of your love you taught!
I’ll always grow my own –
To show my family how to smile
How to carry on!
How to love, when things go wrong,
And how to hold a hand.
I’ll always show that God is Love –
In Him we trust, and walk!
