7in7 Day 1: Standing Beside

I wrote this song with a heavy heart today as I found out a dear friend of mine was shot and killed. My heart breaks for his wife and son. I want to wrap my arms around Anita and just hold her for awhile. She has been on my heart every since I found out the news this morning. So I wrote a song to her.

Standing Beside

I know you can't see through these tears
But I'm here for you

I know you don't understand
But I know what is true

HE'S STANDING BESIDE, THE ONE WHO GAVE HIS LIFE
HIS EYES NOW SEE, WHAT WE CAN ONLY DREAM
NO TEARS, NO PAIN - NO FEARS, NO SHAME

I won't tell you time will heal
'cause your time stands still

There will be a day when you'll be there
And you'll see him again

HE'S STANDING BESIDE, THE ONE WHO GAVE HIS LIFE
HIS EYES NOW CAN SEE, WHAT WE CAN ONLY DREAM
NO TEARS, NO PAIN - NO FEARS, NO SHAME

hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

  2. Such a blessing to me. Time does stand still. It is comforting to hear that. It's hard to believe we are looking at almost one year without our beloved Mark. Your talent has gifted many again. I love you Em.
