A Thousand Years

The first time I heard this song was at the Blaze's Rescue Trainer's Challenge in 2015.  I thought it was beautiful but since I had only heard it that one time, I didn't really pay much attention to it.

The second time I heard it was just a couple of weeks after William had passed.  We were at our nephew's wedding.  I almost didn't go.  In fact, several of us thought of staying home.  But we really wanted to go to show our happiness for such a sweet couple who we love dearly.  This song was played while people were being seated.

I've always had a knack for lyrics.  I don't know why.  I can hear a song one time and remember it forever.  The girls' spoke up when this song played... "Mommy, this song sounds familiar.  Do we know it from somewhere?"  It was at the chorus and I started to sing it for them.  My mind immediately went to William and I had to run to the powder room.

It is unbelievably hard to wait every day, waiting to be reunited.  I loved him before he was a thought and I will continue to love him, as long as my soul exists.  Sweet William.

Lyrics:
Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid
To fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt
Suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I'll love you for a
Thousand more1

Time stands still
beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything
Take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath,
Every hour has come to this
One step closer

I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I'll love you for a
Thousand more

And all along I believed
I would find you
Time has brought
Your heart to me
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I'll love you for a
Thousand more
One step closer
One step closer

I have died every day
Waiting for you
Darlin' don't be afraid,
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I'll love you for a
Thousand more
And all along I believed
I would find you
Time has brought
Your heart to me
I have loved you for a
Thousand years
I'll love you for a
Thousand more
