With Love Today

We thought of you with love today,

But that is nothing new,

We thought about you yesterday,

And the days before that too.

We think of you in silence,

We often speak your name.

Now all we have are memories,

And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake,

With which we’ll never part.

God has you in His Keeping,

We have you in our hearts.
