Oft-times with holidays near
Our hearts can be feeling very sad,
For we are missing of such precious hearts
So loved, a Gran, a baby or a Dad.
We wonder how we can make it through
What will we be able to say,
As folks come to ask and wonder
How we are today.
Should we smile and be brave
Act as if we have moved on,
Or will they require us to reminisce
To disclose that we still long.
O Lord, touch my tender heart
Fill me with Your gentle touch,
For alone, I cannot carry on
As I am hurting just too much.
May You send the sweetest angel
Some loving quiet soul,
Who with one look, will sit
And softly help me feel a little whole.
I'm afraid that when I see the faces
That reflect familiar features
Of the one I loved the most,
I will break forth with such fresh grief
For the one that I have lost,
Hold me close dear Father
Never let me go,
I need Your love so
Hold me close.
