Fallen Limb

Author Unknown

A limb has fallen from the family tree

I keep hearing a voice that says "grieve not for me"

Remember the best times, the laughter, the song

The good life I lived while I was strong

Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you

Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through

My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest

Remembering all, how I truly was blessed

Continue traditions no matter how small

Go on with your life, don't worry about falls

I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin

Until the day comes were together again
