A song of family loss…

THE PRAYER

I said I’d be there just as fast as I can….

As a million thoughts ran through my mind

Phone hanging from my hand

 

And I dropped down upon my knees

Head bent hands clasped in prayer

Praying that on angels wings

I would soon be there….

 

Oh God… please help me make my way

It seems that time is flying by

Can I be there once more to say….

I love you….

To the rock within my life

What a father means to a son

A daughter or a wife…

 

I clambered out the door

With tears still in my eyes

Knowing that I had to tell

The daughter in his life

 

And when I got her on the phone

She knew it in my voice

I heard her start to pray aloud

There was no other choice

 

Oh God… please help me make my way

It seems that time is flying by

Can I be there once more to say….

I love you….

To the rock within my life

What a father means to his little girl

His son and to his wife…

 

As I ran through the door I knew

That I had come too late

The nurse said that he passed at noon

When I saw my mother bent to pray….

 

Oh God… please help me make my way

It seems that times been flying by

One last time I got to say….

I love you….

The rock within my life

What a father to our boy and girl

What a husband to this wife…

 

The best father to our boy and girl

The best husband to this wife….

 

(Spoken)

I love you my sweetheart

God’s peace

I’ll see you again one day
