I Will Carry You

This was kind of a theme through William's life.  My nephew (age 6) died just 4 days after William was born.  When William slowly started to present like symptoms, we vowed to always be grateful for all the things he could do and give thanks each day that we were allowed the opportunity to "carry him," physically, emotionally, mentally.  I knew that he might not live as long as the other children, but I truly believed he would out live me.  We made plans for the older children to care for him after we were gone.  They joyfully looked forward to carrying him through life.  Oh, that I could carry him again...




Lyrics (from full song):
There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?

People say that I am brave but I'm not
Truth is I'm barely hanging on
But there's a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this

So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And I will praise the One Who's chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness, but I know
That the silence has brought me to His voice
And He says

I've shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
And I will carry you
All your life
I will praise the One Who's chosen me
To carry you
