The Hands That Hold You Now


Scars In Heaven

If I'd only known
the last time would be
the last time
I would have put off
all the things I had to do.
I would have stayed a little longer
held on a little tighter,
now what I'd give for 
one more day with you.

Cause there's a wound here 
in my heart where
something's missing,
and they tell me it's going 
to heal with time.
But I know you're in a place
where all your wounds
have been erased
and knowing yours are healed
is healing mine.

Chorus:
The only scars in heaven
They won't belong to me and you.
They'll be no such thing as broken,
and all the old will be made new.
And the thought that makes me
smile now even as the tears fall down.
Is that the only scars in heaven
are on the hands that hold you now.

I know the road you walked was anything but easy
You picked up your share of
scars along the way.
Oh, but now you're standing in the sun
You fought your fight
and your race is run,
the pain is all a million miles away.

The only scars in heaven
They won't belong to me and you.
They'll be no such thing as broken,
and all the old will be made new.
And the thought that makes me 
smile now, even as the tears fall down.
Is that the only scars in Heaven
are on the hands that hold you now.

Hallelujah
For the hands that hold you now.

There's not a day that goes by
that I don't see you.
You live on in all the 
better parts of me.
Until I'm standing with you
in the sun
I'll fight this fight,
and this race I'll run,
Until I see what you can see.

The only scars in Heaven
they won't belong to me and you.
They'll be no such thing as broken,
and all the old will be made new.
And the thought that makes me 
smile now, even as the tears fall down.
Is that the only scars in Heaven
are on the hands that 
hold you now.

When you lose someone that holds 
meaning in your life, you hold onto
the pieces of them that you still
possess.
I have a handful of voice mail
messages that were on my
phone. I listen to them
when I need to be reminded
that there was still love there.
Because he always ended each 
call with 
"I still love you".
I know I took it 
for granted,
as we all do,
in so many things,
that we believe will
be here day to day.
But, now those words
 mean so very much 
to me.
I was struck,
 at the end of the 
last message I have the 
phone recording ends by saying:

END OF FINAL MESSAGES.

*
*
The irony of that can't be
made more clear.
Because they truly are my
final messages.

*

Happy Birthday Wally.
You can't be here,
and I certainly can't be there,
but I still remember,
and I always will.

A Thousand moments I took for granted.
Mostly,
because I assumed there would be
a thousand more.
