“The day God took you home”

A million times

I’ve needed you

A million times I’ve 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 space,

Where no one can ever fill.

It broke my heart to lose you,

But you didn’t go alone

Part of me went with you,

The day god took you home.
