The Blessing


In Commemoration of a Little Soul Gone Too Soon

I lost you alone
There was almost no one to carry you home
Just me and the floor 
And the closed bathroom door
I was blinking and breathing
Not quite believing
Throat like a stone
I lost you alone

And my body was tired
Tired and heavy of heart

Was our house too cold a place to start?
'Cause I never heard your heart start beating
And I never felt the oceans of feeling
I never cried
Never opened my eyes
Till you were already gone

Can you see me now?
I am down on my knees with my 
Fingers down deep in the ground
And I plant these daphnes in the name of my love
And I’ll go forth believing the blessing you’re leaving
Will be more than enough

I am not alone
I am not alone
I will turn to my love and soften my heart
I will let one thing finish so another can start
And I will watch you rise and bloom each year
I will not forget; you will find me here
In the arms of life
Saying thank you, I love you, and good bye

Can you see me now?
I am down on my knees with my 
Fingers down deep in the ground
And I plant these daphnes in the name of my love
And I’ll go forth believing the lesson you’re leaving
Will be more than enough
You teach me of love
You teach me of love
Blood of my blood
You teach me of love
