The Day God Called You Home
A million times we’ve needed you, a million times we’ve cried.
If our love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a space, where no one could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone
A part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
