|If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane,
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one can ever know.
But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more,
To remember all the happy times,
Life still has much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten,
We pledge to you today--
A hallowed place within our hearts
Is where you'll always stay.
Don't grieve for me; for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God's laid you see.
I took his hand when I heard him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay this way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much.
Good friends, good times,
A loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and peace to thee.
God wanted me now; He set me free.
