For one more hour or day,
We’d express all our unspoken love;
We’d have countless things to say.


If we could bring you back again,
We’d say we treasured you,
And that your presence in our lives
Meant more than we ever knew.


If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should,
You’d know how much we miss you now,
And if we could, we would.

Your love will live forever in our heart, knowing that you are the guiding light protecting us from above.
