“I’m Still Here” By John F. Connor

I may be gone but please don’t cry
Death is not the last goodbye.
Death releases me of my pain,
There will come a day we will meet again.
Don’t be blue and don’t be sad,
Think back to the fun we had.
I am always here, I hear you speak,
In time of trouble, it’s me you seek.
You don’t see me, but I see you,
I will do my best to pull you through.
Speak to me and I will hear,
Never far, I am always near.
Be brave my love, do not cry,
See you again, it’s not goodbye.
