Though I’ll never touch your handsome face
Or feel your loving hug
I trust that God has called you home
To give you peace and love
I’ll cherish all my memories
Tucked in my broken heart
Til the day I see you once again
then we’ll never be apart
I love you dearly son of mine
I’ll never say goodbye
I’ll see you in my every dream
And forever hold you in my heart
