Be Here Long

I miss helping him.  Holding his hand.  Having him hold me.  Those sweet little arms around my neck.  That crazy smile that lit up his face and mine.  That quiet giggle or wild laugh.  Inquisitive eyes.  Curious hands feeling for what he couldn't see.  I miss all of him.

Lyrics:
Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long
We don't get to be here long
Though my heart may be in pieces
My eyes are still set on you
And though I can't keep it together
I know that you'd want me to
Oh, I'm swimming in the grief
And there's no anchor that could hold me down
I don't want any relief
'Cause I don't wanna let you go right now
Close my eyes and think of you
Go to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long
Oh, your moments were a charity
They gave me more than I could lose
Yeah, I know you found the promise land
But I'm still here and I'm missing you

Close my eyes and think of you
Got to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long

When the day comes
And the fire is out
I wanna know that
I gave you all, I gave you all I had
When the day comes 
And the fire is out
I wanna know that 
I gave you everything

Close my eyes and think of you
Got to sleep and dream of you
We don't get to be here long
I gave you the best of me
Loved you more than anything
But we don't get to be here long
Oh, we don't get to be here long

We don't get to be here long
