• Famous Funeral Poems


If Tears Could Build A Stairway


If tears could build a stairway

And memories were 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 lose you

No one will 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
