So won’t you take my loving hand, and share my life with me?”
So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right here, in your heart.

But I visit her every day.

On her pillow's where I lay

I'm your baby and I'm here."

your children are okay.
Your babies are born here in My home,
And this is where they'll stay.
They'll wait for you with Me,
Until your lesson's through.
And on the day that you come home
They'll be at the gates for you.

It's the feeling in your heart
it's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start
Though some on earth may not realize, you are a Mother.
Until their time is done.
They'll be up here with Me one day
and know that you are the best one!

As long as I live you will be loved."

Sometimes a moment is a lifetime."
