Original text and translations
Gone are the days we used to share,
but in our hearts you are always there.
The gates of memory will never close:
we miss you more than anyone knows.
With tender love and deep regret,
we who love you will never forget.
Gone is the face we loved so dear,
silent is the voice, the voice we loved to hear.
Too far away for sight or speech,
but not too far for love to reach.
Sweet are the memories so clear,
in our thoughts you will always be near.
