If Tears Could Build a Stairway

Submitted By: Elisha Pharr

If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say, "Goodbye."
You were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you-
no one will ever know.
But now I know you want me
to weep for you no more;
To remember all the happy times,
life still has more in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today-
A hollowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay.
