In memory of our precious Daughter Paula on her Anniversary Our time together was special, So were the memories we made. And although you live in Heaven now, Those memories never fade. We bow our heads in silence, And remember you Paula, with love. And we know you're up there, Watching from above.
Every day's a struggle, And nothing feels the same. And our hearts break a little more, Every time we hear your name. You'll always be remembered, And time may heal our hearts, But a piece of us is missing, Since the day we had to part. If Heaven is for angels, Then we know that's where you'll be, And we know you will be waiting, When Heaven calls for me. Love and miss you so much Paula, Lots of love Mum and Dad xx
