If Tears Could Build a Stairway

If tears could build a stairway,
    And memories were a lane,
I 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 I knew it,
    And only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness
    And secret tears still flow.
What it means to lose you,
    No one will ever know.
