Our hearts are broken and aching

The early morning hours stole you away

Taken from us without warning

Before the break of day

And we’ll cry for you

A mind full of memories

A whole lifetime of stories to tell

You’re babies will hear them all

From us who knew you well

And we’ll laugh for you

Through all of us you live on

In our hearts, for safe keeping

Though your body returns to the earth

Your soul is only sleeping

And we’ll smile for you

You’re eyes are closed for now

And you’re out of our sight

But this is not goodbye, dear cousin

This is just goodnight

And we’ll miss you
