I Want You Here

I adore this man.  In all my life I've never met any person that I respect more than him.  He is a mixture of truth, faithfulness, loyalty, strength, honor, dignity, thoughtfulness, wisdom, compassion, mercy...and everything good in this world.  It was a joy to honor him on his birthday.
But it did not come without sorrow.  The emptiness from the hole in our hearts was glaring.  One of the children gave Michael a bookmark that listed the children's names and Knox said, "But William's not on it."  Monday night, as I was putting the children to bed, Adelina said, "William flew away, didn't he?  Why did William fly away?"  Then she chose the song, "I'll fly away."

He is missed.  Time has not softened the grieving.  I ache for the feel of his little hands, the joy of his beautiful smile.  I need to hold him again.


Lyrics:
An ache
So deep
That I
Can hardly breathe
This pain
Can't be imagined
Will it ever heal?
Ooh... Ooh...

Your hand
So small
Held a strand of my hair
So strong
All I could do
Was keep believing
Was that enough?

Is anyone there?

I wanna scream
Is this a dream?
How could this happen,
Happen to me?
This isn't fair
This nightmare
This kind of torture
I just can't bear
I want you here
I want you here
Ooh... Ooh...

I waited so long
For you to come
Then you were here
And now you're gone
I was not prepared
For you to leave me
Oh this is misery

Are you still there?

I wanna scream
Is this a dream?
How could this happen,
Happen to me?
This isn't fair
This nightmare
This kind of torture
I just can't bear
I want you here
I want you here

God help me,
God help me,
God help me
Breathe

I wanna scream
Is this a dream?
How could this happen,
Happen to me?
This isn't fair
This nightmare
This kind of torture
I just can't bear
I want you here
I want you here
Ooh... Ooh...

An ache
So deep
That I
Can hardly breathe
