I Cried for You

Found this on a bereaved parent's site.  I know nothing about the artist.  The song makes me think of William's funeral.  It rained that day.  A beautiful, soft, constant rain...like the sky was crying.  He loved water of any sort.  Swimming, bathing, sprinklers, rain.  He loved to play in the rain.  It didn't happen often, just once or possibly twice.  I was always so concerned about his health.  But I'm glad we let him do it.  Such joy.

How is it possible to miss someone so much and yet keep going?  I have to remind myself daily...just put one foot in front of the other.

Lyrics:
You're beautiful so silently
It lies beneath a shade of blue
It struck me so violently
When I looked at you
But others pass, the never pause,
To feel that magic in your hand
To me you're like a wild rose
They never understand why
I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper
I'll cross the sea for a different world,
With your treasure, a secret for me to hold
In many years they may forget
This love of ours or that we met,
They may not know
how much you meant to me.
I cried for you
And the sky cried for you,
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter.
But this life was not for you,
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper

Without you now I see,
How fragile the world can be 
And I know you've gone away
But in my heart you'll always stay.

I cried for you
And the sky cried for you,
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter.
But this life was not for you,
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper
That beauty need only be a whisper
