Bring comfort to my heart I pray,
I’ve lost a dear, dear friend.
She understood and loved me,
With a love that will not end.
I’ll carry it within me,
And give it all away.
To each of my own children,
As I live with them each day.
And when my years have been fulfilled,
My time on earth is gone,
The love she richly gave to me,
Will still be living on.
