I'm Still Here:
I may be gone but please don't cry
Death is not the last goodbye
Death releases me of my pain
Here will come a day we will meet again
Don't be blue and don't be sad
Think back to the times we had
I am always here I hear you speak
In time of trouble it's me you seek
You don't see me but I see you
I will do my best to pull you through
Speak to me and I will hear
Never far I am always near
Be brave my love do not cry
See you again it’s not goodbye
