Mommy and Daddy don't cry for me.
To walk the earth was not meant to be.
I’m with the angels, and I watch you everyday. I know that you love me in a very special way. I’m sorry our time was all too brief
In good time you’ll overcome grief. You'll see me every day
In the souls of children who pass your way.
I may be the cheeky boy
With the dimple in his chin
Or the sweet child with the little golden curl. Please know that I’m alright
‘Cause when you look in the sky
On a clear and starry night,
I will be the star that is shining so bright.
I love you, Mommy and Daddy, Good Night.
