In my dreams, you are alive and well
Precious child, precious child
In my mind, I see you clear as a bell
Precious child, precious child
In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart, there is hope
'Cause you are with me still


In my heart, you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

In my plans, I was the first to leave
Precious child, precious child
But in this world, I was left here to grieve
Precious child, my precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart there is hope
And you are with me still

In my heart you live on
Always there, never gone
Precious child, you left too soon,
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

God knows I want to hold you,
See you, touch you
And maybe there's a heaven
And someday I will again
Please know you are not forgotten until then

In my heart you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

    Hi Joy, my name is Simone and I came across one of your postings in a grief fb group. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. In case you are interested, I have created a storytelling project called Our New Lives (ournewlivesblog. Wordpress. Com) that aims to reduce the stigma associated with death, grief and recovery. I think some of the stories may provide you with some comfort. All my love to you xx.

    I lost my grandson, xander on april 22, 2012 I wish I could take the void and heartache away from my son and his girlfriend. This song does truly express our feelings. God blessed on christmas day with his birth, now we have to endure the loss of our precious child. This is the most suitable songs for us who have lost such young children. God bless to all and always be mindful that god loans these precious children to us. They are truly ina better place now!

    My daughter was born sleeping last 5th of dec 2011. There was no sign that she's already dead inside my womb until I bled on that day. Everything happened so fast. Unexpectedly. It was so painful. When I heard this song, the lyrics were perfect. It was exactly what I want to tell my daughter. I always listen to the song. I hope she could hear it in heaven. We may be physically apart now, but I know in my heart, she will forever stay. And someday, i'll be seeing her in heaven. : ')

    I lost my son michael on november 20, 1986, he was 19. He has been gone 25 years. I was working on the compassionate friends candle light service and found this song which I am going to use in the service. The first time I heard it I cried. So many memories of the feelings and the pain I felt at that time. There will always be a hole in my heart and a hole in our family. Thank you karen, for your beautiful song. It is a treasure and a gift to grieving families.
