Losing Someone You Love

This is one of my favorite songs to listen especially when I am alone, or at night, or whenever I feel incomplete. It’s written by  the American singer-songwriter, Jenn Bostic, which is composed for her father who died when she was a little girl. The song is released in 2012.

 

I find the song very powerful and emotional. It feels like your heart is being pricked with a pin in every word of the lyrics. I actually feel like crying every time I hear the song.

 

Losing someone in your life is really difficult. Shadows of the memories… The thought of not feeling or seeing that person or loved one EVER again… The sadness that feels like forever…

 

Here’s Donna Taggart’s version of the song:

 

 

Jealous of the Angels

I didn’t know today would be our last
Or that I’d have to say goodbye to you so fast
I’m so numb, I can’t feel anymore

Prayin’ you’d just walk back through that door
And tell me that I was only dreamin’
You’re not really gone as long as I believe

There will be another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me,
And I will hold on tight
It’s not my place to question,
Only God knows why
I’m just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

You always made my troubles feel so small
And you were always there to catch me when I’d fall
In a world where heroes come and go
Well God just took the only one I know
So I’ll hold you as close as I can
Longing for the day, when I see your face again
But until then

God must need another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me
And I will hold on tight
It’s not my place to question
Only God knows why
I’m just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

Singin’ hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I’m just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

 

 

Some people think that to be strong is to never feel the pain. In reality, the strongest people are the ones who feel it, understand that things happen, and accept it. Death is not an opposite of life, but a part of it.

 

I thought of you today. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that, too. I think of you in silence. I often speak your name. All I have are memories. Your memory is a keepsake.

God saw you getting tired, so He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me.” And your golden heart stopped beating. I miss you. See you when I get there.

 

Every day, every moment is precious. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
