Never be ashamed to shed a tear
For the child you loved so dear,
Each teardrop holds unlimited love
For our precious child who's gone above.

With each tear comes a memory
That God has placed in your heart,
A cherished moment of a time gone by
That God placed lovingly to each teardrop.

Oh, we may wipe each tear away from our face
As each travels down to fall,
But the memories of our child
Can never be erased.

Do not be ashamed to shed a tear
For your child you loved so dear,
When one teardrop falls
Another will take its place;
One day our tears may disappear
Which sounds so really sad,
Our teardrop memories will change places
From our eyes to our heart, never to fade away.
