A Silent Tear
Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I'm really still there inside your mind
Don't cry for me now I'm gone
For I am in the land of song
There is no pain, no more fear
So dry away that silent tear
Don't think of me in the dark and cold
for here I am, no longer old
I'm in that place that's filled with love
