Thank you for leaving us your son.
He gives us the gift you gave to him.
Although we cannot hope to salve his grief,
Nor fill his cup of joy back to the brim,
Know your flame of love has been passed on.
Your love for him will help our love along,
Out of pain his happiness to win
Upon the sweet green fields of our belief.
