Yesterday I saw your smiling face.
Yesterday I heard your laughter.
Now today I face the pain knowing you left us here.
Then tomorrow I will hear you no more, only when I close my eyes and listen.
I cannot go where you go, I cannot follow you to heaven.
I don't want to understand even though I should know that God had bigger plans,
But I would change it if I could. I can only close my eyes,
Let these tears fall where they may, these tears will never dry until we see you again.
