The Broken Chain


We little knew that morning that

God was going to call you home.

In life we loved you dearly,

In death we do the same.

 It broke our hearts to lose you

But you didn’t go alone.

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.

 You left us peaceful memories.

Your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you

You are always at our side.

 Our family chain is broken

and nothing seems the same,

but as God calls us one by one

the chain will link again.
