Today there's a new bumble bee
hovering over the speckled daisies.
Small wings play soft music to me
that sing the same words you did.
Those songs still croon in the breeze
through the stripey bumble bee fuzz.
Tonight there's a new shining star
shimmering beside the smiling moon.
It glistens brightly against the stillness
watching calmly over the world below.
I swear that star has a laughing grin
from seeing the same pranks you pulled.
Tomorrow there'll be something new
so familiar that it feels almost borrowed.
The gentle reminder that you're near.
You reflect in our features in the mirror;
In our kindest deeds to our neighbour;
In the hearts that'll remember you forever.
