When I passed from here to there,
I knew your heart would break.
It's here not there where I reside;
in mountains, fields, and lakes.
In the break of each new dawn
and when the sun goes down,
In birds and trees and skies of blue,
you'll know I'm still around.
A broken heart I gave to you,
no way to take that back;
Grieve for now, but don't stay long
in the hole that's filled with black.
If I were there and you were here,
you would clearly see
That you're right there and I'm right here,
it's where we choose to be.
So dance and sing and laugh out loud,
just like we used to do;
I know it's hard, but you have to see
that I'm right here with you.
And when you feel like crying,
try and smile through the tears;
I hope you will remember,
I'll love you for a thousand years.
And when you're feeling lonely,
and you don't know what to do,
Just close your eyes and read this letter,
from me to you.
