IM SORRY I HAD TO GO
I did not want to go
I did not want to leave
And I most certainly
Didn’t want to see you greave
I’m sorry I had to leave you
But I was called on home
dont worry i always visit you
I comfort you when your alone
I see you when your crying
I’m there by your side
I wipe away your tears
The ones you try to hide
I’m in heaven now
It’s beautiful place to be
When your time is over
You can come home to me
I will leave you lots of signs
And you will know I am there
I will always be with you
I follow you every where
