If Tears Could Build a Stairway

If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And Only God knows why

Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know

But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store

Since you’ll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A hallowed place within our hearts
Is where you’ll always stay

    I lost a dear frient today to cancer and this fits the situation perfectly. She wasn’t afraid and fought until the end when God was ready for her. I’ll always love you Sara Dawkins.

    I found a beautiful music box that had this script on it and beautiful music to go with it. I lost my 24 yr old son and this music box brought me so much joy. It just broke and I’m so sad but will either fix it or get another one.
