Dearly Departed

Dearly departed,
how we loved you
while you were here

Dearly departed,
how we forgot to show
you all our love and all we hold dear

Dearly departed,
what is heaven like
now that you’re gone?

Dearly departed,
we miss everything about
you and your beautiful song

Dearly departed,
at least we have the fond
memories and your smile

We are the dearly departed too
for we have yet to go,
hitherto the Unknown.
