[Destination]: Peace

Not a day goes by
When I don’t think of you,
When the world doesn’t stop
For just a second or two.

It’s been twelve years
And I can still see your smile
When I close my eyes
For just a little while.

Knowing that God
Now holds you in his arms
Has brought me a peace
That defeats the devils charms.

While I wish you were here
I know you’re in a better place
I’m reminded of that every time
I look into my daughter’s face.

She reminds me that
All good things are from heaven sent
So since you’re there now
I can no longer lament.

I thank God that I got
As much time as I had
To spend with you and
To know that kind of glad.

When I feel alone
I remember we’re never apart
For I carry you close,
Always in my heart.
