Missing you always

You never said I’m leaving

You never said good bye

You were gone before we knew it

And only God knows why

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 u didn’t go alone

A part of me went with you 

The day God took you home
