They say, “I’m sorry for your loss”.
They say “Your heart will mend”.
They say you’re in a better place,
and death is not the end.
They say you’re reunited
with loved ones gone before.
They say that you’ll be waiting
when I walk through heavens door.
I feel their love in every word
of comfort they impart,
and know that each is spoken
from deep within the heart.
But all the words of comfort,
though kind, sincere, and true,
can’t take away the emptiness
I’m feeling without you.
