You couldn’t say I’m leaving
You couldn’t say goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.
A million times I needed you
A million times I have cried,
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
No one else can fill.
It broke my heart to lose you
But you did not go alone
For part of me went with you
The day God came and took you home.
So for now you had to leave me
But I will never say goodbye.
For some day we will meet again
In God’s home up in the sky.
