I'm Still Here
Your heart has been heavy since that day --
The day you thought I went away.
I haven't left you I never would --
You just can't see me, though I wish that you could.
It might ease the pain that you feel in your heart--
The pain that you've felt since you've believed us to part.
Try and think of it this way, it might help you see --
That I am right here with you and always will be.
Remember the times we were out in the yard,
You could not always see me yet I hadn't gone far.
That's how it is now when you look for my face --
I'm still right beside you, still filling my place.
I find it to be so very sad,
That seeing and believing seem to go hand in hand.
The love and the loyalty, the warmth that I gave,
You felt them, did not see them, but you believed just the same.
I walk with you now like I walked with you then --
My pain is now gone and I lead once again.
My eyes always following you wherever you roam--
Making sure you're okay and you're never alone.
Our time was too short, yet for me it goes on--
I won't ever leave you, I'll never be gone.
I live in your heart as you live in mine--
An enduring love that continues to shine.
The day will come and together we'll be,
And you'll say "take me home boy", and once again I will lead.
Until that day comes don't think that I've gone--
I'm right beside you, and my love it lives on.
