Verse 1
It does not take a special day.
For me to think of you;
Each Mass I hear, each prayer I say,
Is offered up for you.

Your voice keeps whispering gently,
Loved ones be brave and true;
At the end of life there is sunshine,
I'll be waiting and watching for you.

A silent grief that's in our hearts,
No human eye can trace,
For many a broken heart is hid.
Beneath a smiling face.

We sat beside your bedside,
Our hearts were crushed and sore;
We did our duty to the end, '
Til we could do no more.
In tears we watched you sinking,
We watched you fade away;
And though our hearts were breaking
We knew you could not stay.
You left behind some aching hearts,
That loved you most sincere;
We never shall and never will,
Forget you, sister dear.

Verse 2
I'm only a whisper away
 Come, dry your tears, smile again, love,
I'm only a whisper away,
Near in the dusk of the evening,
Just out of sight through the day.

Watching you waking and sleeping,
Hearing each prayer that you pray,
Sending my love to surround you,
I'm only a whisper away.

Come, dry your tears,
smile again, love,
Remember the good times we've known,
Cherish the joy we discovered -
Love that was planted and grown.

Your road may seem lonely ahead,
And distant horizons look grey,
You won't be walking alone, dear,
I'm only a whisper away.

Verse 3
After Glow
I’d Like The Memory Of Me
To Be A Happy One.
I'd Like To Leave An After
Glow Of Smiles When
Life Is Done.
I'd Like To Leave An Echo
Whispering Softly
Down The Ways.
Of Happy Times And
Laughing Times And
Bright And Sunny Days.
I'd Like The Tears Of Those
Who Grieve, To Dry
Before The Sun.
Of Happy Memories That I
Leave When Life Is Done.
I‘m Free
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much,                                                                                
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.                                                              Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now; He set me free.
