Last night while I was trying to sleep
My son's voice I did hear
I opened up my eyes and looked around
But he did not appear
He said," Mom you've got to listen
You've got to understand
God didn't take you from me, Mom
He only took my hand
When I cried out in pain that night
The instant that I died
He reached down and took my hand
And pulled me to his side
He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain
My body was hurt so badly inside
I could never be the same
My search is finally over now
I've found happiness within
All the answers to my empty dreams
and all that might have been
I love you all and miss you so
And I'll always be nearby
My bodys gone forever
But my spirit will never die
And so you must all go on now
Live one day at a time
God didn't take me from you
"HE ONLY TOOK MY HAND"
When I am gone release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You must not tie yourself to me in tears
Be happy that we had so many years.
I have you my love and you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have shown,
but now itís time I traveled alone.
So i grieve a whail for me if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be soothed by trust
Itís only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories in your heart.
I wonít be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come,
though you canít see or touch me, Iíll be near;
And if you listen with your heart, youíll hear
All my love around you, soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
Iíll greet you with a smile and a
