S: Vera EileenCarver 1925 - 2012
BC: Said good-bye, turned around and you were gone, gone, gone Faded into the setting sun,Slipped away But I won't cry 'cause I know I'll never be lonely For you are the stars to me, You are the light I follow I will see you again, This is not where it ends I will carry you with me tillI see you again I can hear those echo''s in the wind at night Calling me back in time - back to you in a place far away where the water meets the sky The thought of it makes me smile You are my tomorrow I will see you again! Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking but I stay strong and I hold on 'cause I know I will see you again, This is not where it ends. I will carry you with me ~ Until I see you again!
