YOU NEVER SAID GOODBYE
You never said I’m leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone when I awoke
And only God knows why
I kissed and said I loved you before we said good night
Not knowing it would be my last
You were my days and nights
You were my everything
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you will always be my number one
Where no one else can fill
My heart is deeply shattered
You have left me here alone
You took my heart with you
When God felt the need to call you home.
I will never be the same without you Doug
Your heart was kind and true
My heart and love are with you
Until we meet again.
