We saw you struggling 
Fighting to stay
Yet knowing you would soon be going away
Never thinking goodbye showed in your eyes

You were lying there peaceful
No longer in any pain
We were standing there with tear filled eyes
Not wanting this to be our final goodbye

Surrounded by love
Sharing our memories of times gone by
The angels sang us a peaceful lullaby
As twenty-one guns saluted the end of your life
