Finding that Strength

I have so many things that weigh on my soul

There are so many questions that I can only answer with “I don’t know"

So I'm faking smiles and holding back tears

Avoiding conversation and lingering stares

Trying to figure out how to keep the pain away

I still haven't found that day

No I haven’t found that day


Because I can't help but remember

The way I felt when I surrendered

My heart, to you


When I see an old couple walking

Holding hands while they’re talking

I yearn, for you


And you left without leaving a message

Now I'm here second guessing, everything


I still have those nights where I relive that day

There are so many things I’d give anything to say

I'm told that time cures all things

Tell it to the memories that took your place

And that look I have when I see your face

In every picture frame

Only left with remembering

I can cry out “It’s not fair!”

Calling out your name though you’re not there

I’m going crazy wondering

So I’ll pray I can find release

“Please help me find my strength!”


Because I can't help but remember

The way I felt when I surrendered

My heart, to you


When I see an old couple walking

Holding hands while they’re talking

I yearn, for you


Because I can't help but remember

The way I felt when I surrendered

My heart, to you


When I see an old couple walking

Holding hands while they’re talking

I yearn, for you


And you left without leaving a message

Now I'm here trying to find the strength for everything

I’m not sure where this came from as I have never had anyone pass away that I was in a relationship with.I guess it could be someone simply leaving but the emotion that filled me when the words came together was permanent loss. Something I pray I never know. This may have came out of nowhere but it had to be for a reason, so if anyone out there is dealing with this kind of loss, my prayers are with you. Look to the Lord for the strength to find better days and know that this life is not the end. We have an amazing eternity to look forward to and for all the struggles we face, His grace is sufficient. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
