Oue year has passed, and how we miss
Friends may think, the wound is
But they little know the sorrow;
i That lies withiu our hearts conceal
ed. That blow was hard, the loss severe;
To part with one we loved so dear;
The uight was bitter, we'll not com
plain; But ho,H In Heaven to meet again.
A precious oue from us has gone;
'A voice we loved is still;
A place is vacant in our hearts.
Which never can be rilled.
We miss thy gentle kindness here,
In our silent home;
And iu this grief we feel for thee,
We are not alone.
Thy parents and sisters mourn for,
Thee dear one with a grief untold.
Thou were a kind and loving son,
In the days of old for in our hearts,
Thou were entwined with a lore- moat
Just one year ago to-day, our dear son.
Passed away through death he entered
