“Don’t Say Goodbye”
By: Joyce Williams

Don’t say goodbye
I’m still with you
I’ll be by your side
In all you go through.
I’m sitting up here
At the heavenly gate,
Waiting for you
Don’t be late.
We’ll walk together
On the heavenly shore,
Where pain and suffering
Is no more.
Together we’ll sit
At the father’s side,
Where we are greeted
By his arms open wide.
My time on this earth
Has passed and gone,
I’m free at last
I’ve made it home.
Remember Yesterday, today
And tomorrow,
Let go of the unhappiness
Release your sorrow.
Don’t say goodbye
We’ll be together again,
It won’t be long
Until I see you again
In our heavenly home.

Memorial services will be held at West Harpeth Funeral Home 6962 Charlotte Pike, Nashville on Saturday February 13th from 1:00pm thru 4:00pm.
