The Day I Let Go
One of the hardest days I'll ever know
Is the day I had to let you go
I cried and cried and cried some more
I'd never known such sorrow before.
My heart was breaking, my spirit pleading
For the mercy of God to spill over and save.
My mind relives those last moments with you
I could see in your eyes that somehow you knew.
As I read in the Psalms I see promises of hope.
I cry out to God, wonder how I will cope
If you never come home, if you stay there forever.
If your giggle, your smile are tied with a tether
To the mounds of paperwork, the decision of a judge
The laws of a government that is holding a grudge.
I long to hold your hands again,
To whisper in your ear that this isn't the end.
To tell you once more how you've captured my heart
To tell you how I fell in love from the start.
Forever and always you'll be the beginning of my passion
Forever and always my beautiful inspiration.
There's a hole in my heart that's just waiting for you,
How I pray that it will be filled one day soon.
