“Shooting Star”

We came together in your honor
Holding candles up towards the sky
Recalling the day we all met you
Until the day we all said goodbye
We wept and shared our memories
We laughed and shared our thoughts
Then out of the dark, clear sky
A shooting star shot across
Everyone gasped in amazement
For we knew in our hearts so true
That glorious magnificent star
Was truly a message from you
And yet I’ve always heard
God works in mysterious ways....

Well, if this is any example
He’s proven it here today
He brought us together again
Underneath one brilliant sky
And only for a brief second
There was a you and I
We’ll always be together
No matter how far you are
By day you’re my angel in Heaven
By night you’re my shooting star
