Family Chain

If love could have saved you.

You never would have died.

If tears could bring you back,

You’d be at our side.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

But you did not go alone;

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.

God takes us one by one,

And breaks the family chain.

But somewhere in a better land,

Our chain will link again.
