Our lives are not the same today
nor will they be tomorrow.
For we have lost one dearly loved
and hearts are filled with sorrow.
Little in this life can match
The suffering and the pain
that comes when a precious link
has left its family chain.
As one by one and link by link
God calls from up above,
We return to be with Him
and those we’ve missed and love.
Then when time has taken all,
Heaven will behold,
Our family chain, bold and bright,
with links of shining gold.
