One Long Year / Waylon (Son)
It's so hard to beleive that its been exactly one year since I received a call telling me the worst news I could ever imagine. The man who gave me life had left his behind. After a year, I still cry so many tears of sorrow. So many things...
Miss me but let me go Since I have come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me, I want no tears in a gloom filled room. Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me awhile but not too long. And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared miss me but let me go.
Because this is a journey we all must go alone. It's all a part of the Masters plan, a stepping stone to the long road home. When you are lonely, depressed or sad, go to the friends we know. Bury your sorrows in doing good things. Misse me but let me go.
God is taking care of me now. I thought you might need to know. He will be there for you when you need Him, so Miss me, but let me go
A Message of Hope
I Have a Place In Heaven Please don't sing sad songs for me, Forget your grief and fears, For I am in a perfect place, Away from pain and tears...... I'm far away from hunger And hurt and want and pride.
I have a place in Heaven With the Master by my side. My life on earth was very good, As earthly lives can go, But Paradise is so much more Than anyone can know...... My heart is filled with happiness And sweet rejoicing, too. To walk with God is perfect peace.....
A Father's Love is always with his Children
No matter how old we are, losing a father is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know.
But his goodness, his caring, and his wisdom live on- like a legacy of Love that will always be with you.
May the memory of his love surround you now and bring you peace.
