If tears could
build a stairway and memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back 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 still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store
Since you'll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A cherished place within our heart
Is where you'll always stay
These stairways to heaven and into the light are dedicated to my sister in law, who unexpectedly and much too early departed us recently. It is so hard to loose a relative as well as it is to do so with a friend. It is so more and incredibly painful if both go together.
Only time and a firm trust in god, which she always felt and spread to all around her, will help in our mourning. We will met again ...
Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure
and I know
there'll be no more tears in heaven
