Verse I
If life could only bring again, the days I took for granted when
To hear your voice was just a call away
Oh what I'd give for just some time, to say the things that slipped my mind
There's so much now I'd really like to say
But I can never go back when we did the things we did back then
I'll store those precious memories in my mind
I'll take what you've instilled in me; I'll try to be all I can be
And walk the path that you have left behind

I sure miss you; life will never be the same with you not here
Each passing day has brought much pain
But with God's grace my strength remains
I sure miss you, but heaven's sweeter with you there

Verse II
The little things that seemed so small are now gold in a memory vault
I cherish every one I have of you
Now I can see and recognize the part you played to shape my life
I often see you in the things I do
In God's design and master plan He saw the hurting hearts of man
As we would say goodbye to those so dear
So with our family and friends we'll be together once again
We'll view all heaven's splendor hand in hand

    The first time I heard this song I was taking a long walk after I got the news of my Mom's death. We were living miles apart on different Islands. I was sick and could not fly to her as promised and was not able to be at the funeral. The words of this song helped to heal a broken heart. Thanks.

    These are but a few of the words to express how I have felt. These words have so much meaning to me. They mean so much to me because I have not been around my mother for 6 months. Although, my mother is alive and well, it sometimes feels like my mother died 6 months ago when we lost contact. We had some family matters go wrong, and consequently, my younger brother and I have not been able to see our mother or spend quality time with her like we used to. It breaks my heart everyday. I have tried and tried to find words to express myself, and these words have fit perfectly. With God's grace, I will have the strength to make it through life each passing day. It's not only hard for me, but it's so painful each and every day for my brother. I'm only 17 years old and I feel like I am on rock bottom. I was in an accident back in 2011, and I'm no longer able to use my right eye - not even able to open it. And my mom was there with me every step of the way. I was hospitalized for 24 days and she never left my side. She was my best friend. And the past 6 months feels like its been Hell on earth, with the pain and heartache everyday. I've spent many sleepless nights, and the rest I spent crying myself to sleep. I often listen to The Crabb Family. & When I found this song I was speechless. This song has truly touched me. I know that what I'm going through might not be much, but to me it's the hardest thing to go through. But I know with the help of prayer, and God's grace and mercy, I will see things through. I will be able to open my eye one day and I will have the bond with my mother again that I once had. I claim it in the name of Jesus! I pray for her everyday. And whoever reads this - please whisper a prayer for me. Thank you so much!
