"Just living is not enough, one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."

This is not at all How we thought it was supposed to be We had so many plans for you We had so many dreams But now you've gone away And left us with the memories of your smile And nothing we can say And nothing we can do Can take away the pain The pain of losing you
And we can cry with hope We can say good-bye with hope 'Cause we know our good-bye is not the end And we can grieve with hope 'Cause we believe with hope There's a place where we'll see your face again We'll see your face again
And never have I known Anything so hard to understand And never have I questioned more The wisdom of God's plan But through the cloud of tears I see the Father smile and say 'well done.' And I imagine you Where you wanted most to be Seeing all your dreams come true 'Cause now your home And now your free
We have this hope as an anchor 'Cause we believe that everything God promised us is true We wait with hope And we ache with hope We hold on with hope We let go with hope
