Torn in Two
My heart was torn in two that day,
As I watched your life slowly fade away,
All of our dreams were gone in a flash,
All I have now are memories of the past.
We laughed and we smiled as we talked,
Of the roads in our lives we had walked,
Hand in hand we walked in true love,
A gift from God from high above.
The memory of me meeting you that first day,
I knew you would be mine if God wanted it that way,
I knew in my heart you were there only for me,
I prayed to God to let it come to be.
The day came that I promised to,
Forever and always to care for you,
In times of poor and of wealth,
In times of sickness and in health.
We spoke softly of the joy we felt the day,
God, let our little girl come our way,
The smile on your face the sparkle of your eyes,
Was the purest sight of love nothing could hide.
We cried as we remembered the pain and joy,
At the birth of our son our little boy,
I nearly lost you and him that day,
I fell to my knees and begged Him to let you stay.
We had love and not much more,
But in love you can never be poor,
What we lacked in worldly things,
Were replaced by the love our hearts sang.
How we held onto each other tighter and stronger,
When we were told you were healthy no longer,
You fought your illness you did not give up,
I saw you struggle I endured your pain you had enough.
I never told you this but at night I would pray,
For God to take your pain away,
I asked Him to let you be free,
To give the pain to me.
He answered my prayers my sweet love,
He took you home, high above,
You have touched the face of God,
You have walked the path Jesus and the Saints have trod.
You are in the place of love the purest kind,,
The pains of earth are forever left behind,
You are not in pain or suffering no more,
Waiting for me to join you at Heaven's door.
With the grace of God I will move on,
God will find me another to fill what is gone,
Not to replace you or your love,
But she will be a gift from God above.
