If We Could Have You Back

If we could have you back for just one day,
There would be so many things we would like to say.
If we could just be with you for one whole day,
To have you close and know that you really are Okay.

If we had known that you would be gone forever,
If we had known all those ties were going to be severed,
If we had known the pain, the loss, and the ache,
If we had known the difference without you would make.

In the darkness you slipped away from us all,
Now it's just your memories that we have to recall,
They say that parting is such sweet sorrow,
But it's the longing, the wondering, and how to cope with tomorrow.

They say that grieving a child is the very worst,
Cause life's plan is that the parents should go first.
Now all we have are memories, the good times that we had,
We spend so much time in tears, and pain and feeling sad.

So if we could have you back for just one day,
You could let us know how to cope until that judgement day.
When we'll be together as a family once again,
When we'll all be happy and free from all this pain.

Oh! It's so hard to live when your child has to die,
Then we spend our lifetime trying to say Goodbye!
