If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If tears could build a stairway,

and memories were a lane, 

I would walk right up to Heaven

To bring you home again

No farewells were spoken,

No time for goodbye,

You were gone before I knew it

and only God knows why. 

My heart still aches in sadness,

and secret tears will flow,

What it meant to me to lose you

No one will ever know

Love Your Sister

And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. Revelation 14:13 KJV
