I'm Gonna Miss You

by Grace 12. July 2018 21:05

This is a song I wrote in memory of a dear friend who died suddenly a few weeks ago. The point of view is supposed to be from any of any of her 3 older siblings who were either out of state or out of country when she died. Naomi, this is for you and we all love and miss you.

 

I'm Gonna Miss You

Verse 1: I was shocked by the news of your passing;

It was sudden, dramatic, and fast.

I couldn't believe that your laughter and smiles

Were locked behind bars of the past

We thought you were safe that you were secure

That we'd come see you again soon

But next time I see you, it will be beyond sun, stars and moon

 

Chorus: I'm gonna miss you

I'll miss hearing your voice

And sometimes I can't help but stop

And question why God made this choice

I'm glad you're in heaven

though the leaving was sudden

And sometimes I don't know what to do

And if you can hear me right now, I just want you to know,

I'm gonna miss you.

 

Verse 2: I know that you now are with Jesus,

And Jesus is down in my heart

So if you are with Him and he's still here with me,

We really can't be far apart

But it isn't the same as seeing your smiles

And hearing you laugh by my side

When I heard you had left us, I can't tell you how much I cried

 

Chorus: I'm gonna miss you

I'll miss hearing your voice

And sometimes I can't help but stop

And question why God made this choice

I'm glad you're in heaven

though the leaving was sudden

And sometimes I don't know what to do

And if you can hear me right now, I just want you to know,

I'm gonna miss you.

 

Bridge: And I know you are safer right where you are

Than you ever have been before

And I know when it's my turn to leave this earth

You'll greet me on that blissful shore

The parting was bitter and full of tears but the meeting will be full of much

more joy

I can't wait for the day when I see you again but, oh boy,

 

Chorus: I'm gonna miss you

I'll miss hearing your voice

And sometimes I can't help but stop

And question why God made this choice

I'm glad you're in heaven

though the leaving was sudden

And sometimes I don't know what to do

And if you can hear me right now, I just want you to know,

I'm gonna miss you.

 

 

Now let's hear from you!

Did you enjoy the song?

Thanks! I'm glad you liked and and I appreciate your prayers. It's certainly a trial, but she's with the angels worshiping Jesus now and we're so happy for her!

I'm glad you liked it, Twinsie. ;) I'm just glad she's safe in heaven now where nothing like this will ever happen to her again. ;)

This is really sad! My mom actually told us about her; she had read about it on a  Facebook homeschool group, I didn't know you knew her. We've been praying!

Oh really? Did you know Naomi? Or her family? We've known them for about 8 or 9 years. ;) Thank you for prayers!

Oh, this is so sad, and pretty.  You did amazing job.  You should put this to music, if you haven't already.  And when you do, I want to hear it.  Smile

Thanks Amie! I do have music for it, and I REALLY want to get it recorded. I'll definitely let you hear it when it's finished. I thought you might like this one. ;)
