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
