Who can say for certain

Maybe you’re still here

I feel you all around me

Your memories so clear

Here in the stillness

I can hear you speak

You’re atill an inspiration

Can it be

That you are mine forever love

And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are

Beyond the distant star

I wish upon tonight

To see you smile

If only for awhile to know your there

A breath away’s not far

To where you are

Are you gently sleeping

Here inside my dream

And isn’t faith believing

All power can’t be seen

As my heart holds you

Just one beat away

I cherish all you gave me everyday

Cause you are mine forever love

Watching me from up above

And I believe that angels breathe

And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up to where you are

Beyond the distant star

I wish upon tonight

To see you smile

If only for a while to know you’re there

A breath away’s not far to where you are

I know your there

A breath away’s not far to where you are.

taken from “To where you are”

This is not goodbye, just until we meet again.
