THE HOUSE IS EMPTY

The house is empty without your smile
And all we did to go the extra mile
Your love for life and happy face
Now replaced by an empty space

Slowly your things disappear
All the reminders you were here
Teddy bears, books, clothes and things
All the little stuff that helped you sing

With the speech valve your opinions you voiced
And in your laughter we greatly rejoiced
Now the house is full of silence
And is now deafening with your absence

All the things I thought were true
Were not what made you you
Material things they come and go
But it is your spirit that lives you know

How I miss your sweet smile and laughing eyes
And when someone left, oh how you would cry
You accepted everyone with unconditional love
So generously given by your Father above

You never had to learn of amazing grace
Because He gave you all you needed to run this race
He gave you His heart of purest gold
And when He made you, He broke the mold

You were my teacher, one of the best
You taught me patience and when to rest
You spoke to my heart, yet never spoke a word
And everything we shared, in God was anchored

You touched so many lives with your life
Now God has called you home from the strife
Now you can walk, talk, run and sing
Sharing it all with God, everything

He gave you to us for so short a time
But what we shared will last a lifetime
And even though you are now home in heaven
Your life will still touch others, of that there is no question
