can you read this …

… without tears?

Maybe I’m just too emotional right now. Who knows. But seriously – I tried listening to it this morning and couldn’t even make it a minute in before I cried and had to turn it off. It WAS Monday morning, the most difficult morning for me to leave my Peanut, but seriously. I made myself listen to the whole thing this afternoon, and of course, I cried again!

From Big Daddy Weave (Track #: 9; Album: What Life Would Be Like; Lyrics By: Mike Weaver, Mark Schultz), here’s “From Here:”

My child, I’ve hoped and I’ve prayed for this very day
Since you were just a little one
And oh how my heart swells with pride
As I watch the man that you’ve become
But this life offers no guarantees
And though my time on this earth had to end
I’m sure that your heart would know peace
If you could just see where I am

From here, the race has been run and love’s already won
I see clearly the end and the start
From here, I’m cheering you on
So live out each breath with all that you’ve got
And know until I hold you close
I’ll be holding you dear in my heart
From here

I’ve seen your tears as you’ve waited alone
Longing for that special one
And now all the waiting is done
As you gaze into her eyes
Seeing the reflection of love
Life’s road may seem rough up ahead
And for now you see only in part
So hold onto each other and know
That there is an end to the dark

Heaven is calling and my heart keeps longing
Looking so forward to the day
When we’ll be together forever in eternity
Just you wait and see

Did you make it? Come on, be honest!

The song is awesome. In fact, the whole album is amazing. I’ve only listened to it in its entirety twice so far, so it’s not reviewable at this point. So far, though, I’ve loved every minute of it!
