(In Loving Memory)

If tears could build a stairway,

and memories a lane

I would walk right up to Heaven,

and bring you back again.

Tho farewell words were spoken,

with little time to say "Goodbye"

You were gone before I knew it,

and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness

and secret tears still flow,

What it meant to love you-

no one can ever know.

But now I Know you want me

to mourn for you no more,

To remember all the happy times,

life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten,

I pledge to you today-

A hollowed place within my heart

is where you'll always stay.

You were loved by many but we now know

God loved you more! Barbara Barbara Lee Lee (Crosby) (Crosby) Mann Mann
