                                       In Sympathy

                                A rose may lose its bloom,

                       But still the fragrance lingers long.

                                A bird may fly away.               

                       Yet we can still recall its song.

                  So when someone who is loved departs

                             To join the Lord above,

                     They’ll live and laugh and be with us

                             In memories of love.
