Something I did not know , one last tear will always show
When they are on their dying bed , on that pillow
Where they rest their head -you will see the last earthly tear shed.
This is the tear of good bye as they go to the other side
This tear is for a world that has fallen out of grace
And the hardships that they must face.
The tear is also for the ones that are left behind
As they all join and cry.
The Hospice nurses see it all – as the last tear starts to fall.
Wish them a safe journey as they leave
Because there will be enough time for you to grieve.
Gather together all the good times that had passed
And the laughter and joys that will forever last.
There will always be a memory that will stay in our mind
And we’ll treasure it for all time.
The last tear in their life that you will see
Will be embedded in your memory.
