Love From Far Beyond The Realm Of All Things
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
Because 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
I know the road you walked was anything but easy
You picked up your share of scars along the way
but now you’re standing in the sun, you’ve fought your fight and your race is run
The pain is all a million miles away
The only scars in heaven, 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
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t see you
You live on in all the better parts of me
Until I’m standing with you in the sun, I’ll fight this fight and this race I’ll run
Until I finally see what you can see.
The sting of his death is still very real, while at times the pain is so unbearable it brings me to my knees, and I begin to pray.
I pray to our God to give me the strength to make it through somehow, but I’ve never been more homesick without you than now.
Happy Birthday Dave
