And a time to every purpose
under the heaven.
A time to plant and a time to harvest…
As God sows and reaps
each tiny seed in the soil,
He cares for us from first light
And far beyond our earthly toil.
I have so many things to see and do. You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, be
happy that we had so many years. I gave
you my love, you can only guess how
much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each
have shown, but now it's time
I traveled on alone. So grieve a while
for me if you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for a while
that we must part, so keep the memories
within your heart. I won't be far away,
or life goes on. So if you need me, call,
and I will come. Though you can't see
or touch me, I'll be near. And if you
listen with your heart, you'll hear all of
my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must
come this way, I'll greet you with a smile,
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears,
But be thankful we had so many good years.
I gave you my love, and you can only guess
How much you've given me in happiness.
I thank you for the love that you have shown,
But now it is time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart..
