I know the way I left you
Wasn’t the easiest way to leave
I’m sorry I couldn’t have made it easier
Somehow lessened all the grief
But you see I have been struggling
For some time with a broken heart
And my best efforts to repair it
Couldn’t begin to start
To take away the pain I felt
To help me feel some hope
My spirit was daily dying
And I lost the strength to cope
I know you had no notice
But how could I begin to say
That I couldn’t keep on just existing
Surviving day by day?
You would have begged me to continue trying
You would have done most anything
It might have worked…but maybe not
To heal this wound in me
So don’t be caught up in worry
Never think to blame yourselves
For I’ve gone to God who is over all
Seeking the one true source of help
Know that I’ll love you forever
And can’t wait for you to see
The wondrous gift of healing
God is fashioning in me
And there may be some who feel my choice
Is a selfish evil sin
But I know that God understands my pain
And I’ll be judged by only him
So in the midst of such deep sadness
Feel some happiness too for me
For God’s now healing my broken heart
And He’s setting my spirit free
