“A Silent Tear”
Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I’m really still there inside your mind
 Don’t cry for me now I’m gone
For I am in the land of song 
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear 
Don’t think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am, no longer old
I’m in that place that’s filled with love
Known to you all as - up above.
