"They told me you were gone today,
I still don't believe it's true
'cause in my mind, I still see your face
smilin' like you always do
As I walk thorugh my garden,
the flowers all in bloom
In every one, I see your face
smilin' like you always do"
"Trials and tribulations,
we've seen more than just a few
But through it all I saw your face,
smilin' like you always do
Our time together way too short
but I am glad your pain is through
And even tho, I miss you so,
I'll try to smile like you always do"
