Strong & Stead Fast
Never looking to the past
One hundred years you have stayed
One hundred years, you have led the way

Always had good things to say
Criticizing others has never been your way

The one i look up to for your strength & Light
Always feeling loved
No matter how many of us there were in sight

Always beautiful inside & out
Like a rose opening for the first time in the sun
It is here you have shone & won

When others leave their shadow behind
You shall leave your light

Not a day will you be out of sight
Nor ever out of mind
You'll always be the first true friend of mine

I will not cry when the time comes simply because you are gone 
But because you have lived

Your legacy is here to stay
A bright light that will never fade

Growing old is so weary
For each one of us will eventually have to go
It is my faith that helps me to know
that we'll all be together again in the after glow

As time slowly closes in
I'll be alright
Your never out of sight
For now, you are, my guiding light
