He took you without asking
Without even saying  ‘bye’
He took you away from your family
And just left us here to cry
Though it was an accident
It hurts me just the same
You were my brother-in-law
And even more my friend
But now it’s all gone
And it’ll never come again
And now you’re up in Heaven
Watching everything we do
You’ll always be part of our soul
And we will always miss you
Life just  hasn’t been the same
And though we are apart
We still will always love you
And we’ll always be close in heart
