The things we felt so deeply
Were the hardest things to say,
But we, the family, loved you
In a very special way.
They say memories are Golden,
Well, that may be true,
But we never wanted memories,
We only wanted you.
If tears could build a stairway
And heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk a path to heaven
And bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken
And nothing will be the same,
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
