I feel your thoughts, I know your heart.
I am not far away at all. I'm closer than you would believe!
You think if you stop grieving that you will somehow lose me.
You're afraid that if you love again,
That you will grow away from me.
You can never lose me!
Your soul has grown right into mine.
A tapestry of our life and love.
You cannot lose what has become
A vital part of you.
Someday you'll see that I was with you all along the way.
You'll then regret the time you spent
Wasting many thoughtful tears
And grieving for so many years!
But while you cannot see that now,
You'll find out what you think you lost
You never lost at all.
I am merely gone from view.
I am here;
I'm here beside you
Waiting for the Chosen Time
When you will see and touch and feel me
As I run into your arms again.
