A million times we’ve needed you,
A million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a special place,
That no one else could fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God took you home!
