Words to use with the names of those who die from Coronavirus without their loved ones:

If I die someday
Beyond the scope of your care,
Beyond the reach of your voice,
Beyond the touch of your hand,
I do not die alone:

My heart has stored the memory of your care, 
My mind the sound of your voice, 
My body the touch of your hand.
I was never alone.
