As time goes by
And life flows ever onward
We often pause to think of better days;
Of those we held and loved in happy moments
Before there came a parting of the ways.
Through bitter-sweet remembrance
Of some dear smile upon a well-loved face,
Until we come to joyous glad reunion
Eternally, in heaven’s meeting place.
