You’re out of pain now
How we are born and how we die
Is not something we’re given an option…
It’s not a choice we’re allowed to make…
It’s fate that makes the decision.

You fought the battle as well as you could
But the illness raged ever so strong…
My heart always went out to you
Whenever I saw you in that condition.

It hasn’t been easy in any way~
All you’ve had to enduring and go through…
Yet despite the pain life brought each day
You remained so wonderful.

You were very brave to the very end~
You endured all that came your way…
There isn’t anyone who could ever forget
How special you were always.

Rest in perfect peace, dear one…
You were truly one in a million…
The pain is now over, the pain has ceased~
The good memories will always be cherished…
You’re precious in every way~
I’ll treasure and miss you always.
