Missing you always

Shared by Amanda McCallister on February 15, 2019

You never said I'm leaving

You never said goodbye

You we're gone before we knew it and only God knew why

A million times I needed you

A million times I 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 I hold a place 

that only you can fill

It broke my heart to lose you

but you didn't go alone

as part of me went with you

the day God took you home
