If Tears Could Build A Stairway

if tears could build a stairway

Today, we lost a very dear member of our family. A close aunt. We were very fond of her. She was only 65. Memories of her will always be fresh in our hearts.  We will miss her very much. But first, we have to adjust to the thought that she is no longer with us.

Unexpected death is so painful.

I urge you to say your I love yous before it is too late. Don’t put off the little things!

Life is too short!

“If Tears Could Build A Stairway”

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane.
I 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 I knew it,
and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you –
No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.

Since you’ll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hallowed place within my heart
is where you’ll always stay.

    I am so very sorry about your Aunt. As for always saying the ‘I Love Yous’ when every I leave the house or hubby leaves we always say, ‘I love you’ and when I talk to my girls or the grandkids I do the same and so do they.
    It is so important we let those we love know it. Life can change so quickly.
    Again I am so sorry and the poem is beautiful. Thank you for sharing. My prayers are with you Vidya.

    Amen! You are absolutely correct that life is too short to not live it up and enjoy the company of the people in our lives. Thanks for the reminder.

    Btw, if tears could build a stairway I would have a stairway to the moon from all the tears I cried in my past haha.

    Hi Vidya,
    I’m so sorry for your loss! “But first, we have to adjust to the thought that she is no longer with us.” That can take a while but let it take the time it takes.
    A big hug,
