of my dearest sister, Raquel
Nineteen years ago...
Today you went home with Jesus,
Walked hand in hand through heaven's gate.
You are still with each of us,
In our hearts your memory waits.
To remind us with each new day,
Our life's are touched by your love,
You're not really far away,
Waiting for us in heaven above
Someday when Jesus calls our name,
One by one we'll meet again,
We'll walk hand in hand the same,
Meeting you at the gate to heaven.
When we miss you and need to visit,
We'll go to the garden and wait.
So we can feel your spirit
Just beyond the garden gate.
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be,
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is a memory,
they live on in our heart.
