I Am With You Always
As you hold me close in memory,
even though we are apart,
my spirit will live on,
there within your heart.
I am with you always.
When you lean on trusted friends
and their caring hugs enfold you,
within their loving arms,
I'll be there to hold you.
I am with you always.

And beyond the far horizon
when we'll finally be together,
where love will be eternal
and life will last forever.
I am with you always.
