Missing You Always
You never said I'm Leaving
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why.
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still.
In my heart I hold a place that only you can fill.
It broke my heart to lose you
But you didn't go alone.
A part of me went with you
The day God took you home!
I love you momma, Deanna
