If Tears Could Build a Stairway
If tears could build a stairway
And memories a lane,
We would walk right up to heaven
To bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.

Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears will flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know.

When we are sad or lonely,
And everything goes wrong,
We seem to hear you whisper,
“Cheer up and carry on!”

Each time we look at your pictures
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry I’m only sleeping,
We’ll meet again someday.”
