Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

You're Still with Me

I sat down and wrote this tonight. Missing Amanda so very much.

You’re with me every day.
All I have to do is…close my eyes and pray.
And you’re there, you’re there…
I can see you plain as day.

I can see the little girl you were,
All those years ago…
When you first came to live with us.
The little girl who crawled up in my lap,
The little girl crawling in our bed each night,
The little girl who made me laugh,
Who made me cry, who made me smile…
I can see the little girl you were,
The little girl who brightened up my life.

Though you no longer walk this Earth,

You’re still with me every day.
All I have to do is…close my eyes and pray.
And you’re here, you’re here with me.
I still see you plain as day.

That girl entering her teens,
You’re the one that I still see,
Struggling to find yourself and who you were.
Moving through each teenage phase,
Searching for your unique way.
Sometimes you thought I didn’t understand,
Other times you thought I did not know,
But all the things you were going through
Were things I’d seen and things I knew.

Though I could not protect you…

You’re here with me every day.
All I have to do is…close my eyes and pray.
That’s when you’re here, when you’re here with me,
When I see you plain as day.

The young woman you’d become,
Who you were in your last days.
The one who’d made me so very proud
Of the beautiful lady that you were.
Strong and stubborn, that was you…
So much like me, so much like me.
I hope you know how much I loved you,
How proud you made your Mom and Dad.
I wish I’d told you much more often,
I certainly would have if I’d known.

Now I can no longer hold or touch you…

But you’re still with me every day.
All I have to do is…close my eyes and pray.
That’s when you’re here with me, here with me,
And I still see you plain as day, plain as day...

You’ll always be here with me every day…
