Aunque ya no estás entre nosotros
Nos llena de alegría el saber que
Nos dejas una vida llena de amor.
Con tu ejemplo nos enseñaste a superar
Los momentos más difíciles y seguir adelante
Tú desde el cielo estarás vigilante a tu familia
Y nosotros desde aquí, con nuestras oraciones,
Pediremos al Creador te tenga siempre junto a Él

Aunque no estés más a nuestro lado, tú presencia es permanente.
Las enseñanzas que nos dejaste las viviremos siempre.
Tenemos la seguridad que nos amarás desde el cielo,
como nos amaste en la tierra.
