And I wished for so long... cannot stay.
All the precious moments... cannot stay.
It's not like wings have fallen... cannot stay.
But still something's missing... cannot say.

Holding hands of daughters and sons,
And their faiths are falling down.
I have wished for so long...
How I wish for you today.

Will I walk the long road? Cannot stay...
There's no need to say goodbye...

All the friends and family.
All the memories going round.
I have wished for so long.
How I wish for you today.

And the wind keeps rollin',
And the sky keeps turning gray.
And the sun is set...
The sun will rise another day.

I have wished for so long...
How I wish for you today.
I have wished for so long...
How I wish for you today.

Will I walk the long road?
We all walk the long road...

    I feel this song speaks to the grief i have for the loss of my daughter, it seems to capture so much of what i feel each day, missing her, but knowing that she could not stay... Each day continues without her physically present, but she remains close and forever in my being.
