"Tears  If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I'd walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again.No farewell words were spoken no time to say goodbye you were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness and secret tears still flow what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know."
