For You Pearl
You closed your eyes
You never said good-bye
All that’s left
Are the teardrops
That fall from our eyes
The only hope we have left
Is when we’ll meet
When our time is near
Ride the rainbow
For someday we’ll meet
When it’s our turn
To ride the rainbow
Sleep in Peace
Sister-In-Law our love for you
Is in Heaven
Where you’ll be
