LEAVING THE PAST BEHIND


All the tears I shed for you have dried
For time does not stand still and moves on
I have accepted God needed you in heaven
In your pain a much better place to be
My times of need an Angel watches over me
The day you died all day I cried
My love for you could never be denied
My dear Lord needed you more by his side
Heaven's gates opened and accepted you
Some day my turn and will be accepted too
There is still work down here for me to do
But you know I well see you once again
Live life clean and avoid mortal sin
Others who have lost loved ones it is hard to do
Leaving the past behind as I learned and grew
So today once more leaving the past behind
Yet in times like this you are on my mind
So I pause and look up for the angel sign
That you have moved on left the past behind
