Four Dirges

I do not know the reason
Why you were called away
But in my heart you will remain
For ever, and a day.

If tears could send a message,
If sadness eased the pain,
You'd get a message every day
Until we'd meet again.

A loving smile, a thoughtful deed,
A helping hand when others need,
A fragrant rose, a summer breeze,
We'll think of you in all of these.

Do not let the tears run dry,
Let mourning have its place,
But empty yourself of sorrow,
Then let memories fill that space.
