A short funeral verse about the pain of grief and saying goodbye to a loved one, to read at a funeral or memorial service.


I never knew a single word could alter all it touched

I never knew a word could make me cry

I never knew our last sad word would break my heart so much

I never knew.... before we said goodbye
