When Loved Ones Say Goodbye
When loved ones say goodbye,
The earth seems to stop spinning.
Everything that once went round and round
Now is silent and dimming.
I had feared the worst
Would make my world shatter,
But then I find it has made me stronger,
And now even the smallest things matter.
I am not afraid to cry,
I am not afraid to weep.
I can be confident in knowing
My loved one is in peaceful sleep.
