When I lost you…
I wish I could see you one more time, come walking through the door.
But I know that is impossible, I will hear your voice no more.
I know you can feel my tears, and you don't want me to cry.
Yet my heart is broken, because I can't understand why someone so precious had to die.
I pray that God will give me strength, and somehow get me through.
As I struggle with this heartache, that came when I lost you.
