FOREVER IN MY HEART I thought of you today, But that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday, And the day before that, too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, All I have are memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memories are a keepsake, From which I will never part, God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart. Love, Merdis
