    The first time I saw your face

    Your unique thoughts and points-of-view
    Your caring for others, no matter who

    You are no longer a prisoner of pain
    You are now happy and whole again
    You lost the battle, but not the war
    You are now free to vastly soar
    You are now living a just reward
    You are walking and talking with the Lord
