You lay there fighting for each breath
While angels hovered 'round your bed
With open arms like God’s own smile
They led you to the light

What a battle you have won
And now your journey has begun
To the land where spirits fly
And your soul will never die

So travel lightly in my heart
You and I will never part
And far beyond this world we see
There’s a place for you and me

And I thank my lucky stars
We had a chance to heal our scars
Now I don’t have to hang my head
Over things I wish I’d said

So here am I your only son
I’m thinking back on work we’ve done
You were strong and I was young
Man we had our fights

And everything I felt for you
Has been turned to something new
And this is love I feel today
It will never go away

So travel lightly in my heart
You and I will never part
Far beyond this world we see
There’s a place for you and me

And I thank the moon and stars
We had a chance to heal our scars
Now I don’t have to hang my head
Over things I wish I’d said

I don’t have to hide my tears
I don’t have to drown my fears
And I don’t have to hang my head
Over things I wish I’d said

No, I don’t have to live in dread
Over things I wish I’d said

    WOW. What a song! The meaning of this song to me is my son.My son is 37 I am 60 and have copd.He and his wife takes very good care of me and when I heard this song I ask him to come and listen to it.I told him this song fits you so well,when its my time to go you have nothing to be a shamed of you will never have to say I wish I'd said this or done that because you have said it all and done it all.So yes the meaning of this song is my son.I don't know if this is what you are looking for but its how I see it.By the way I did tell him I wanted it played at my funeral.
