When Heaven Called My Father's Name

written by Gary John R

 

 

Tired eyes go to sleep

I know you find it hard to breathe

looking so frail

I know your weak

there are no words for you to speak


 

a silent room

there's nothing to say

I hold your hand

you feel no pain

I hold back the tears

try to be strong

I am with you now

it won't be long

 

 

there's no more pain

just you and me

a silent room

sleep peacefully

no words to say

outside it rain's

my father has gone to a better place


 

even at the end you stayed strong

I got scared and that was wrong

and I know I failed you

how do I explain

did I leave you alone with only the rain

 

hold on with every breath you take

yet something tells me Heaven won't wait

so selfish of me although I try

to find the strength to say goodbye

on boxing day an angel came
then Heaven called my Father's name


 

when a tired heart falls to sleep

when thoughts of mind become so deep

and we know for sure we are out of time

we prey Heavens Angel won't leave us behind


 

a whisper from the sky up above

when we feel the power of Heavens love

after the waiting there will be no more pain

but only when Heaven calls my father's name


 

the beat of a heart that is slowly dying

I have no strength to keep me from crying

tomorrow you won't have to wait for the rain

hold my hand and quietly slip away


 

something tells me this is not the end

I know in Heaven you shall be born again

you leave me now but I am not alone

you're here in my heart and I won't let go


 

there is nothing to stop these tears I cry

oh god I love you

I don't want you to die


 

a light desends on a perfect sky

and we embrace all of time

angels wings shall carry your soul

the more love we feel

the further you shall go


 

maybe there is nothing we should ever fear

in a final breath does it all become clear

I know it's sad but nothing stays the same

it won't be so bad

when heaven calls my name
