On funeral day, countless tears were shed,
Moving words spoken and eulogy read.
Tears came afresh, bathing eyes with our grief
Realizing how your love was most chief
Within a heart for others that has ne’er been found.
Overwhelming thanks and gratitude sound;
Our last goodbyes given as casket soon closed
Pallbearers all as we, up the hill, rose.
When burial time came and our job was soon done
An awesome sign showed beside the face of the sun:
Hundreds seagulls freely flying soared above
Soft angels sent with God’s very own love.
