God called your name so softly
That only you could hear;
And no-one heard the footsteps
Of the angels drawing near.

Your face is always before me
Your voice I will never forget;
Your smile will linger forever
In my memories I see you yet.

Your voice keeps whispering gently
“Dear one, be brave and true.
At the end of life there’s sunshine;
I’ll be watching and waiting for you.”

So put your arms around her, Lord,
And keep her forever safe,
For she was someone special
And can never be replaced
