Sitting by a calm stream, I call out your name, Wishing you to answer, I look up to the sky.
Walking by your room, I seek the face of someone who isn't there, And wishing to see you're heavenly expression.
I sit here trying to hold back the tears, The tears I've wanted to cry for so long. But I know you're not there, And that you are well. You were sick for so long, But now you are free of all pain.
I sit here holding back the tears, The tears I've wanted to cry for so long. But I know I can not, Because I have to be strong.
Holding back the tears, I know I can not cry. I know I can not wear my feelings On my sleeves like so many others, But I know I have to be strong.
I have to be strong And hold back my tears Until they are no longer sad, But tears of joy From seeing your smiling face And your warm body surrounding me.
I know I have to be strong, And in vision the day, When I see your smiling face, Walking arm and arm with God. But until that day, I have to let you go. Go with God, And live happily, free of pain.
I walk through the woods And sit by the stream, Seeking out your wise words And wishing to see your warm face smiling at me.
You've always told me its okay to cry, But I feel I can not, Because your not hear to comfort me. So I hold back the tears I've wanted to cry for so long, But I know I can not Because I have to be strong.
I sit hear and wait, Knowing the day has come. A tear rolls down my face As I watch you walking, Walking arm and arm with God.
