Since heaven has become your home We sometime feel alone And though we are not far apart You hold a big piece of our heart We never knew how much we’d grieve When it was time for you to leave Or just how much our heart would ache From that one fragment you would take God let this tender hole remain Reminding us we’ll meet again And one day all the pain will cease When he restores the missing piece For Jesus heals each tiny part That hold your memory in our heart This tearful heart reminds us of When he’ll unite us with his love
