BRIDGE OF LOVE
There is a bridge of memory,
from the earth to heaven above.
It keeps you always near us,
It’s called the bridge of love.
May you always walk in sunshine
And God’s love around you flow,
For happiness you gave us,
No one will ever know.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you.
The day God called you home.
