    Don’t cry for me.
    I will be okay.
    Heaven is my home now,
    and this is where I’ll stay.

    Don’t cry for me.
    I’m where I belong.
    I want you to be happy
    and try to stay strong.

    Don’t cry for me.
    It was just my time,
    but I will see you someday
    on the other side.

    Don’t cry for me.
    I am not alone.
    The angels are with me
    to welcome me home.

    Don’t cry for me,
    for I have no fear.
    All my pain is gone,
    and Jesus took my tears.

    Don’t cry for me.
    This is not the end.
    I’ll be waiting here for you
    when we meet again.

    I know that this is the hardest time for you and your family, But just know she may be gone but will never be forgotten
