|We lost you just two years ago,|
A sorrow that still stings;
Still, the tears and emptiness
The loss of loved ones brings.
Your day of birth and burial
Turned out by chance the same,
And so each year when it comes round
We feel both joy and pain.
Our sadness comes from missing you,
And missing you from love,
And love from you, the love of life
That we became part of.
Your love is still alive in us,
We feel it ever new;
Our mourning's filled with happiness
By memories of you.
