  7. If I had only known the last time would be the last time
    I would’ve put off all the things I had to do
    I would’ve stayed a little longer, held on a little tighter
    Now what I’d give for one more day with you
    ‘Cause there’s a wound here in my heart where something’s missing
    And they tell me that it’s gonna heal with time
    But I know you’re in a place where all your wounds have been erased
    And knowing yours are healed is healing mine
    The only scars in Heaven, they won’t belong to me and you
    There’ll be no such thing as broken, and all the old will be made new
    And the thought that makes me smile now, even as the tears fall down
    Is that the only scars in Heaven are on the hands that hold you now

    I miss you more than words can express
    I never imagined my life without you here
    Thank you for everything
    You truly were the “salt of the earth”

    Revelation 21:4
    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
