I knew you when you were very small
You looked up with big sad eyes
I loved you then as I held you in my arms
My love grew among and above them all.
You never asked much and at times I wished upon a star
That you could live forever guided from afar.
But at last you could no longer go on
I said goodbye and sent you to God.
We will be altogether someday
Until then I will always pray
That we will know each other
And meet on the pathway to heaven.
