We Didn’t Get To Say Goodbye
We didn’t get to say goodbye
We’re devastated that you’re gone
We’d have done anything to keep you here with us
Right here where you belong
We didn’t know that life would take
Such an unexpected path
That you’d be separated from us so soon
Heartbreaking reality we struggle to grasp
And bitter though our losing you has been
And so profound is the pain that we bear
We’re sadder still at no chance for goodbye
No final expression of our deep love and care
Yet trusting that you’re not too far away
Still sensing that your Spirit lingers near
We’ll say our goodbyes in our words and thoughts
Having faith that each one you’ll hear
First know that you are loved in the truest of ways
So deep that only our hearts can give expression
And you’ll be forever surrounded by our love
For we’ll send it with you to heaven
Please know you’ll be cherished by each one of us
For your example and kindness we’ll treasure
We understand now how your life was a gift
That was meant to bless us forever
And though we’ll miss you terribly
We want your spirit to be free
Free to enjoy all the wonders of heaven
Not bound to us in our grief
So watch over us with happiness from heaven
For we’ll remember you with mem’ries so sweet
And we’ll bravely endure ‘til you’re with us again
When our hearts will be healed and complete
For surely one day we’ll be together again
In God’s arms and in heaven with you
For death cannot conquer a love that’s as strong
As the love that we all feel for you
