Hold Me In Your Heart

This morning I am leaving,
For I’m now ready to go.
I leave you with my heart and thanks
This, please always know

I cherished every moment,
From the day that you were born.
Every chat and every milestone,
And for this dear, please don't mourn.

I cannot stay,
I cannot stay,
But there's a light beyond the darkness and today.
Remember me,
Remember me,
Please hold me in your heart, for I am free.
Please hold me in your heart, now I am free.

I tried to live each day to the fullest,
Right to my very last.
So please now do the same for me,
Do not linger in the past.

In my life I tried to have courage,
Be the strongest that I could.
Love and value those around me,
As my Lord told me I should.


Just remember, I'm now dancing,
In the way that I always knew.
I’m now free from my body’s boundaries
Always dancing beside you.

Please don't forget to work hard,
But be happy in all that you do.
Life will challenge and sometimes knock you down,
But there's fire inside of you.


Now I know you may feel sadness,
I am sad too, that we must part.
But I am grateful for the life I had,
Dear, please hold that in your heart.

Now let me say this last thing,
Don't forget I'm always here.
To watch you and to guide you,
My love is always near.
