Things Left Unsaid

I want to thank everyone that came to celebrate David. Some dropped in for just a few minutes, others stayed for the whole service. Still others sent messages, cards, flowers and donations. I am blessed beyond words by your love and support, each and every one of you, thank you.

For those of you who did not get to stay for the service, it was truly a celebration. While we do not belong to a church, my Hub did contact a Pastor friend of his and asked him to speak. He came and talked with us for a couple hours on Tuesday evening and he spent time getting to know Capt Snuggles through the reading of my words.

He incorporated music, personal reflections and Bible verses. He also read my letter to Capt Snuggles. While he chose several beautiful songs, he chose one song in particular that simply broke me. I’ll do for you what he did for us – he read these lyrics and then he played the song. Read the words, listen to the music. The song is by Disciple, a Christian Rock Band.

You will need kleenex.

Things Left Unsaid

It’s just a matter of time a few days ago
I saw you, you were fine
Remembering what you said
About the book you read
The one I got you
The Beginning of the End
Oh how we’d talk
For hours upon end
What I would give
Just to do it again
But you’re lying there
In this hospital bed
Won’t you open your eyes
And let’s talk once again

If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I love you
I hope that you can hear me
I hope that you can feel me
If you fly away tonight
I want to tell you that I’m sorry
That I never told you
When we were face to face

Well I’ve been here all night
And I’m watching you
Breathe in and breathe out
Is it really you
Or just a machine
That’s giving you life
And it’s making it seem
That there could be hope
I could say to your face
If it weren’t for you
That there would be no grace
That’s covered my life
You took the time
To speak into my mind
And my heart
Words of life


So goodbye for now
And I’ll see you again
Some way, somehow
When it’s my time to go
to the other side
I’ll hold you again
And melt at your smile
Now all I have
Are the ones that I’m with
And you taught me not
To take for granted
The time that we have
To show that we care
Speak into their minds
And their hearts
While they’re here
And say I love you
