For those we have lost

For those we have lost
Our hearts share the pain
For life that was given
Shall always remain
The heart that is broken
In life will now heal
But words that were spoken
Shall always reveal
The joy that they gave us
Are memories we treasure
No hopes for a future
Their lives now we measure
Somewhere in time
Their spirits now dwell
In shadows that greet us
We bid life's farewell.
