MY DEAR KRISTINE
One sad and lonely year has passed since our great sorrow fell;
The shock that we received that day, we still remember well.
God gave us strength to meet it, and the courage to face the blow;
What it meant to lose you, no one will ever know.
Beside your grave I always stand and try so hard to understand.
The tears in my eyes I wipe away, but the pain in my heart is here to stay.
Loved and deeply missed,
God please forgive a silent tear, a constant wish that she was here.
You have taken others, yes I know; but she was my daughter and I loved her so.
Grant her peace and eternal rest. Love her, Dear God, for she was the best.
