Does it ever get any easier

It's hard, dealing with you leaving us.

It was almost a month ago when the Lord called you home

Yet here I am broken. Still don't know where to go.

I know there's really nothing I can do

A little of your faith right now I could use.

Everything feels empty, like I'm wasted

I'm selfish now because I can't bring myself to face it

But that's not how you'd be wanting this to go.

I'm looking up at you, beautiful like a rose.


I don't know how I'm gonna make it through

Living every day in this world without you

I'm not the best at dealing with this stuff,

but the best thing you taught me was how to love.

Now you're gone, and I really don't know what to do.

It's been this long, and I still don't want to think it's true.

I'm so thankful God put you in my life,

but there are no words that can ever make this feel right.

Don't worry yourself about me though.

I'll see you when I get there. I'll bring you a rose.


Love is the greatest thing you taught me to do.

You loved even those who didn't love you.

Jesus must have been patiently waiting

for you to finish one last beautiful painting.

It's called life, and you lived it well.

Talk to you for 5 minutes, and anyone could tell

That you were a child of God, most high.

You were one of the best ones. That ain't no lie.

As much as I hate it, it's time for me to go.

When I get there, I'll bring you a rose.


I love you.
