Memories of You
We do not need a special day to bring you to our minds.
The days we do not think of you are very hard to find.
Each morning when we awake we know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache as we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you no will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still.
There will always be a heartache, and often a silent tear
But always a precious memory of the days when you were here.
If tears could make a staircase and heartache make a lane,
We’d walk the path to Heaven and bring you home again.
We hold you close within our hearts and there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again.
Our family chain is broken now and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
