I lost a treasured friend a year ago today
my little girl who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And share her silent thoughts with me.
She’ll come no longer to my call,
Retrieve no more her favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own
called her to His golden throne.
And though my eyes were filled with tears,
I thank Him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me,
And for her love and loyalty.
