When we are sad and lonely dear,
And everything goes wrong,
We seem to hear you whisper,
Cheer up and carry on.
Each time we see your photo,
You seem to smile and say,
Don't cry I'm only sleeping,
We'll meet again some day.
They say it's a wonderful journey,
From the old world to the new,
Sometime we'll take that journey,
Because dad it leads to you.

We hold back the tears when we speak your name,
The ache in our heart remains the same,
No one knows the grief we share,
When the family meet and you're not there.

A little corner in our hearts,
Is set aside for you,
As long as life and memories last,
We will remember you.

When we long for a face and a voice that is gone,
We think of you singing and treasure your smile,
And feel you're not lost,
Just gone for a while.

Goodnight papa.
Wee Eric.
