Your time here was shorter
Than we'd wanted it to be,
And every moment you've been gone,
There's emptiness in me.
We thought we'd have a lifetime
That we could share with you.
We hoped & wished for many things
That now will not come true.
But no matter what may come our way
We'll always have one wish:
To tell you, now & evermore
How much you're loved & missed
