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.
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.
