If you could see me now, you wouldn’t shed a tear. Though you may not understand why I’m no longer here, remember my spirit, that’s the real me, I am still very much alive if only you could see. I’ve seen your mansion and will meet you there someday, allow Jesus to be your guide his words will show you the way, so please don’t cry, we will meet again someday.
