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.
