a daughter prepares to meet her father in Heaven."carry you home"
Coming to greet you
By Lisa Noe
A tear is still welled in my eye
I guess it will stay until I die.
He came and got you way too soon
He carried you home, which meant my doom.
We had a special relationship
A bond so strong it would not slip.
You were my father and I your girl
I loved you more than all of the world.
Your sparkling blue eyes I shall never see again
You were once my very best friend.
Mama sure misses you, she still cries
She’s become strong, takes care of us guys.
She and I have gotten to be
The best of friends you’d be proud of me.
I stay right by her, I now know
How fragile life is and how quick it can go.
When I pray I talk to God about you
I know you're in Heaven and I’ll be there in a few.
Years pass quickly, thirty have passed
I’m ready to greet you, it’s time at last.
