There is in grief a saving grace,
A melody of love
So beautiful no angel could
A mourner's heart so move.

The pain is just a measure of
The value of the loss,
A gift that will remain a gift,
For life can be no less.

The love's not lost, nor will it be
Eroded by the wind,
But will become the soil in which
You plant new seeds each spring.
