Just one year ago you left me,
When Jesus called you home.
And oh, how I have missed you.
While living all alone.
Yes. I have missed you so much.
Since your voice 1 cannot hear.
Yet, 1 know that life is such,
That all will leave a vacant chair.
Though I could not wish you back
With all your pain and sorrow,
But would say with Jesus remain.
In that Happy Land of tomorrow.
