Our Candle in the Wind

Goodbye Irvine’s Rose
You will always stay in our hearts
You were the girl that placed herself

Where smiles were torn apart.  You called out to our needs
And whispered to those in pain
Now you belong to heaven
And an Angel has your name
And it seems to me

Like you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunsets When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along Irvine’s memories
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever will
Loveliness we’ve lost These empty days without your smile
This strength you’ve always carried

As Irvine’s golden child

And even though you tried
To last many joyful years
All our words cannot express
The joy you brought us through the years

You filled our hearts with joy,

You made us feel richer,

With that precious smile,
That ear to ear grin.
You were always kind to everyone,

You had compassion, sympathy, and a heart of gold.
You were a gift sent down from God,
And in your few years on this Earth,

You have brought us much.

You taught us how to love, to laugh, to be kind and generous,

And you showed us how important life is.

We will never forget you, Jamie,
We miss you so much,
But you are in a better place now,
Smiling down on us from Heaven.

God saw that she was getting weak
And a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around her
And whispered, “Come home with me
With tearful eyes we watched her suffer
And saw her fade away
Although we loved her dearly
We could not make her stay
A golden heart stopped beating
A determined spirit was at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best



God looked around his garden, And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth, And saw her smiling face.
He put his arms around her, And lifted her to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the BEST.
He knew that she was suffering, He knew she was in pain.
He knew that she would never, Get well on this earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed her weary eyelids, And whispered "Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to loose her, But she didn't go alone.
For part of us went wither her, The day God called her home.
