It Will Be Lonely Here Without You

It will be lonely here without you,

We will miss you more each day,

For life will not be the same for us

Since you’ve been called away.

We will always remember the way you looked,

The way you walked and smiled,

All the things you did for us,

We will be with us all the while.

You always did your best,

Your heart was true and tender,

You lived your life for those you loved,

And those you loved will remember.

Father

We think of you in silence

We often speak your name

All we have are memories

And a picture in a frame.

If tears could build a stairway

And heartaches make a lane

We’d walk a path to heaven

And bring you home again.

Our family chain is broken

Nothing seems the same

But God will call us one by one

A chain will link again.

We pray to God in heaven

Take this message up above

Tell Father how much we miss him

Give him all our love.
