We Only Wanted You
(In Loving Memory Poems)

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true ..
We never wanted memories
We only wanted you.

A million times we needed you
a million times we’ve cried ..
If 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 place
no one can ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane ..
We’d walk the path to heaven
to bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same ..
But as God calls us one by one
the chain will link again.
