Memories in the Heart

Feel no guilt in laughter,

She knows how much you care.

Feel no sorrow in a smile

that she’s not here to share.




You cannot grieve forever,

She would not want you to.

She’d hope that you would carry on

the way you always do.




So talk about the good times

and the ways you showed you cared.

The days you spent together,

All the happiness you shared.




Let the memories surround you,

A word someone may say

Will suddenly recapture

A time, an hour, a day.




That brings her back as clearly

As though she were still here,

And fills you with the feelings

That she is always near.




For if you keep those memories

You will never be apart
