Let me hear again your sweet voice
and the subtle sound of your gentle laughter.
Oh, to again see your smiling face would
fill my heart with awe and wonder.
And to once more take a quiet stroll
together along the old field road
while enjoying the quietness of the eve
as blows a soft summer breeze.
Oh, to also sit quietly by your side
while the day peacefully transforms to night.
Soaking in the warmth of your love
as tender moments silently slip by.
How I wish I would have known
that was the last time we would speak on the phone
chatting away below that silent, watchful moon;
how I regret hanging up too soon.
The only comfort I now have is
a picture in my heart and soul
of you living a wondrous life
tending to the Lord’s beautiful garden
in the realms of God’s heavenly kingdom.
