|My heart is so fragile, and I’m falling apart.
The thought of the holidays is breaking my heart.
There is no cheer to spread this year,
I just want to run away and forget I’m here.
I feel guilty and sad and full of despair.
I’m letting down everyone and it’s just not fair.
Do you know the kind of pain that I feel?
I can’t do it this year; I just can’t deal.
So let me do this in my own way,
And then I’m sure that you will see
That because love is there inside of me,
I must endure what is meant to be.
I pray ever day, “God show me the way.
When I feel alone at night,
There’s no one here to hold me tight.
I need Your help to find the path that is right.”
It’s been over a year, and I still cry.
Sometimes I don’t even know why.
The tears, the sorrow, the pain I feel
My aching heart that will not heal.
I wonder if only there could be
One more time for you and me.
A time when God could share a place
For us to meet, face to face.
One last time to say farewell,
And know that you are safe and well.
The comfort I would then feel
Would ease my pain and help me heal.
