Little Did We Know

Little did we know that morning

that God would call you name.

In life we loved you dearly,

in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

you did not 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 on 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.
