YOU’RE THE SMILE IN MY MEMORIES (A Song for All of Those Who Have Lost a Loved One)

Flora Love Shape

Chorus
You’re the smile in my memories
The sad tears I’ve still yet to cry
The years they pass on silently
The rivers will pass and run dry

Oh! How I miss you
Dear loved one of mine
My heart’s lost a piece
It no longer shines

It no longer shines
There’s a cold, closed door
’Cause sometimes it hurts
Life’s not as before

Chorus
You’re the smile in my memories
The sad tears I’ve still yet to cry
The years they pass on silently
The rivers will pass and run dry

Life’s not as before
Never be the same
Each breath’s lost a gem
Of a treasured name

Of a treasured name
Love will always love
You were my sweet friend
And now you’re above

Chorus
You’re the smile in my memories
The sad tears will lessen and dry
The years will pass on silently
The rivers will heavenward fly

Trying to write this through my tears as I remember my dearest brother,
my only sibling, Miles, on what would have been his 52nd birthday.

    1. Kathleen … I am so sorry about your sister … I can’t remember you ever mentioning her. Forgive me if you did. May the Lord fill that area of loss with a bouquet of His everlasting, heavenly blessings. May the sweet fragrance of her memories linger always. Hugs dear friend. Happy New Year xxx
