The ones who have gone on

my dearest friend such sadness, you've had in just a short little while
yet still you seem to manage, to always put on a smile.

you have lost so many close to you ,they've gone on to meet the king
and yet your heart still finds a reason, to go on an sing.

I want you to know I'm here for you, as you go along your day.
if you feel you need a friend, I'm here every step of the way.

I know sadness feels your heart and teardrops fill your eyes
because goodbyes are hard to say, and that I realize.

so if you need a hand to hold, then friend please reach for mine.
I'll always be here for you, no matter the day or the time

yes so many loved ones have gone on, and many more will go
but they go to a better place we know, because Jesus tells us so.

so let your heart feel saddened, let the teardrops fill your eyes .
but remember this my friend ,we'll see them again, in heaven by and by.
