They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true. I never wanted memories, I only wanted you. 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 no place no one else could fill. 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 back one by one, the chain will link again.
