Since You Left

By Anthony Wade

You are still loved and missed Anna.


It has been a dark year of winter since you left

Left this hole in me

The snow falls

A white-out in my soul

Everything changed and nothing stayed

Nothing stayed the same

Since you went home

Since you left

Blessed are those that mourn

Lord I need Your comfort

I need Your arms around me

I need

To see a single set of footprints below me

To see me through

Lead me besides the still waters

Calm my soul

For the valley of the shadow of death

Remains around me

Since you left

I come to You

Because I am weary

And heavy laden

And need the rest only You can provide

The peace that transcends all understanding

Because this I do not understand

More questions than answers

Yet through You alone

More faith than doubt

Since I got that call

Since you left

It has been a dark year of winter

Since your smile I saw last

Why do we draw closer only once we have lost?

Fail to appreciate until it is gone?

Let us give flowers

To the living for a change

Appreciate all that God has given you

Before the mist is gone

Because last year seems like last night

When I could see you

And hold you

And realize everything you meant to us

Still not used to speaking in the past tense

When I speak of you

Not used to all this snow

This winter

A year...

Since you left.
