Here I stand

I am standing at the crossroads lonely and scared-
Leaving behind the life we once shared;
Nothing is the same,
Everything is dark and lonely.
Your memories in my heart
Tears stinging my cheeks
I stand here –
Here I stand, afraid to go on.

In the first moment,
we stood at my door
as the world got quiet
we finally knew.
I went from a single mom
To being a family with you.
Our life didn’t have everything;
only those little things –
the little things I cling to as…

I am standing at the crossroads lonely and scared-
Leaving behind the life we once shared;
Nothing is the same,
Everything is dark and lonely.
Your memories in my heart
Tears stinging my cheeks
I stand here –
Here I stand, afraid to go on.

Life delivered many things,
together we carried on
sheltering each other.
Always meant to be;
A love so strong
it weathered the storms.
You were a gift from heaven above;
You are everything to me —
Everything that was taken from me…

I am standing at the crossroads lonely and scared-
Leaving behind the life we once shared;
Nothing is the same,
Everything is dark and lonely.
Your memories in my heart
Tears stinging my cheeks
I stand here –
Here I stand, afraid to go on.

Love stronger
than anything tried to be;
A heavenly gift
everyone should feel one day.
A storm has come –
it may be bigger than me;
you are no longer standing here…

I am standing at the crossroads lonely and scared-
Leaving behind the life we once shared;
Nothing is the same,
Everything is dark and lonely.
Your memories in my heart
Tears stinging my cheeks
I stand here –
Here I stand,
–I will go on.
