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 could ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you.
But you didn't go alone
For a part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.
