Mom and dad:
A million times we needed you,
A million times we cried,
If love alone would have saved you both,
You would have never died.
...If all the world was ours to give,
We would give it years and more,
To see you coming up the steps,
And walking through the door.
To hear your voice and see your smile,
To sit and talk a while,
To be with you that same old way,
Would be our fondest day.
Two hearts of gold stopped beating,
Four smiling eyes closed to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
