Gone Just for Little While
I'm gone for a little while don't shed any tears
Im with you in spirit and will be with you for all your years.
I taught you every thing you need to know
to get through life it soon will show.
Just follow the path and live your life right
You will grow to a person that can love and not fight.
I'll see you soon so you don't need to cry
We can hug and kiss and I'll teach you to fly.
