Never Alone

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I hear this song on the radio periodically and, especially in light of part II of yesterday's post, it really makes me think of Nicholas, Sophia, and Alexander.

Never Alone
(Barlow Girl)

I waited for you today, but you didn't show. No, no, no. I need you today, so were did you go? You told me to call- said you'd be there- and though I havent seen you, are you still there?
I cried out with no reply and I can't feel you by my side, so I'll hold tight to what I know: you're here and I"m never alone.

And though I cannot see you and I can't explain why (there's) such a deep, deep reassurance you've placed in my life. We cannot separate because you're part of me and though you're invisible, I'll trust the unseen.

I cried out with no reply and I can't feel you by my side, so I'll hold tight to what I know: you're here and I"m never alone.

We cannot separate because you're part of me and though you're invisible, I'll trust the unseen

It's a religious song (I'm sure you can hear the overtones), but to me, it succinctly puts how I feel today and how I've felt in days gone by. It reminds me of them so much and in so many ways. Especially the lines "we cannot separate because you're part of me" and the refrain. They're hear. In the rain and the wind and the sun. I didnt lose them- that would be impossible. They're a part of me. They always were, they always will be. Just like Bobby and Maya. Our physical bodies may fade... We mail fail to make memories together on earth... My eyes may ache to see and my arms may yearn to hold... But my soul? My heart? They'll always be there. Forever.

(I don't care for the music video, but if you're game to hear the song- which is beautiful- you can lick here)

Beautiful words and a beautiful song. All of our children are always with us, we cannot be separated, not entirely.
