The trains kept moving
The planes kept flying
As you lay dying in your bed

The goats all gathered on the mountaintop
The birds still singing
As your heart stopped

Your eyes cried one last tear drop
I didn't realise you were so near to death
I got the call that you'd left the world
What was I supposed to do

Your picture sits on the television
Your here for every mealtime
Your smile is ours everyday
And your memory never goes away

Life never stops for death
Everyone keeps moving on
No minute silence for you or I
Just a lonely tear
And a bitter cry

Your face lit up any saddened soul
now you've gone away from this world
