If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
To 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.
Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on.
And cherished memories never fade because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be more than a thought apart.
For as long as there is memory, they will live on in the heart.
