STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN


They say memories are golden,

Well, maybe that is true;

I never wanted memories,

I only wanted you.


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 piece

No one could ever fill.


But now I know you want me

To mourn for you no more,

To remember the happy times

Life still has much in store,


Since you’ll never be forgotten

I pledge to you today;

A hallowed place within my heart

Is where you’ll always stay.


If tears could build a stairway

And heartache make a lane;

I’d walk the path to heaven

And bring you back again.


Our family chain is broken,

and nothing seems the same;

But as God calls us one by one,

The chain will link again.


Love, Sue
