I have loved you for as long as I can remember
but now you obey a different master.
You hear a new voice, you greet a new face.
Carry my love and joy in your heart
I am but a memory now.
My gentle touch, our favorite games
no longer required to complete the day.
Your suffering gone, the pain relieved
they are but memories now.
Carry my friendship in your heart
until the day we play again.
