Good by


Here one day and gone the next
The good Lord has laid you down to rest
As I sit here and wipe the tears from my eyes
Their was no time to even say good bye
Sitting here with my heart hurting and my mind racing
Remembering so many memories we had made
You telling me to stay strong and never be afraid
While in the back skinning a buck
Teaching me to drive that old pickup truck
You brought laughter and joy with you everywhere you went
Never knowing what to expect.. When you showed up at a family event
When you accepted the Lord into your life with opened arms
That was something that surprised us all
While you was leaving your temple and your soul was being set free
I do know just how much you did love me
As you walked those stairs up to them heavenly gates
We knew you where going home to a better place
Doing a crossword puzzle sitting in her chair
I bet Grandma was waiting on you to get their

Loved by many....forgotten by none....in our hearts you will forever be
