Perhaps you sent a lovely card, or sat quietly in a chair.

Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so we saw it there.

Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say:

Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day.

Whatever you did to console our hearts,

We thank you so much, whatever the part
