They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason
Will change the way we feel.

For no-one knows the heartache
That lies behind our smiles;
No-one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried.

We want to tell you something
So there won’t be any doubt;
You’re so wonderful to think of
But so hard to do without.

There is no night without a dawning,
No winter without a spring;
And beyond death’s dark horizon
Our hearts will once more sing.

For those who leave us for a while
Have only gone away
Out of a restless, careworn world
Into a brighter day.
