You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you
You never would have died
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place
That no one will ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you
The day God took you home.
