Until We Meet Again
Those special memories of you will always bring a smile
If only I could have you back for just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do
You always meant so very much and always will too
The fact that you're no longer here will cause a lot of pain
But you're forever in my heart until we meet again
