If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken.
No time to say good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.

When I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom-filled room, Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little-but not too long and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me-but let ...(Read more)
