Ryan hums a love song
Shhh…Be still and Listen
He whispers to you
He whispoers to me
whispers and whistles
in the restling trees
as we all hum along

I remember you
you remember me

and Oh, Yes Ryan
we remember all of you
Smile so big and always true
Sparkling eyes dance to a tune
Heart far reaching like an oak tree
Alive and fun your love for me
I remember you in all the trees
whispering to the heart of me
The wheat fellds so golden
Your love so ever beholden

Ryan rides a love song
so shhh Be still and Listen
He whispers his tune
as we all hum along
as he happily re-unites
with those gone before him
