Paradise Found

We know you're no longer with us, and it so hard that you're not here,

we see your face in everything and hear your voice so dear,

your smiling face, your warm embrace we really miss the most,

But you have made you're way to Heaven to be with the Lord of Host.

We will always hold you close to us, deeply in our hearts,

It just so hard to say goodbye I wish we'd never part.

But I know a piece of us is with you as you loved with all your heart.

So we send our love up to Heaven as our hearts are forever bound,

We know you made it home and paradise is found!
