“Missing You Always”

You never said I’m leaving

You never said goodbye.

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 you didn’t go alone.

A part of me went with you

The day God took you home.
