If Sunflowers Grow In Heaven

If sunflowers grow in heaven Lord,
Please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my daughter’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her
and when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day.
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.

If Tears Could Build a Stairway

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane
We would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say Goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.
Our hearts still ache in sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one can will know.
But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more.
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.
Since you’ll never be forgotten,
We pledge to you today,
A hollowed place within our hearts
is where you’ll always stay.
