My body’s gone but my soul is here, Please don’t shed another tear. I am still here I’m all around, Only my body lies in the ground. I am the snowflake that kisses your nose, I am the frost, that nips your toes. I am the sun, bringing you light, I am the star, shining so bright. I am the thoughts, inside your head, While I’m still there, I can’t be dead.
