You showed me how to walk, & 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 & bear
When in despair I went,
You taught me how to smile again
When death rolled in, & took a soul!
Now lifes’ moved on, & toll its’ took
On how you lived your life,
When all you gave to us your heart
You’re love so sweet divine!
A year’s now past, & through it’s 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, & walk!
