when there are no words

Ever have someone you were so close to that when they hurt you hurt? Someone other than your spouse or your children.

And when that person experiences loss you want to take their pain away - but know you can't.

Ever wonder what to say to someone when they've experienced death and you know that I'm sorry is no where near enough to explain the sympathy that you have?

Ever cried for the loss that someone is feeling instead of the death itself?
Because when we die we are immediately at peace. Our pain and suffering is finally gone and we are able to smile down on the ones we love. But when someone close to us dies, we don't immediately see the peace, instead we feel loss.

And then there are no words

When I get where I'm going
on the far side of the sky.
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly.
I'm gonna land beside a lion,
and run my fingers through his mane.
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
there'll be only happy tears.
I will shed the sins and struggles,
I have carried all these years.
And I'll leave my heart wide open,
I will love and have no fear.
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
Don't cry for me down here.
I'm gonna walk with my grandaddy,
and he'll match me step for step,
and I'll tell him how I missed him,
every minute since he left.
Then I'll hug his neck.
So much pain and so much darkness,
in this world we stumble through.
All these questions, I can't answer,
so much work to do.
But when I get where I'm going,
and I see my Maker's face.
I'll stand forever in the light,
of His amazing grace.
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
there'll be only happy tears
.Hallelujah!I will love and have no fear.
When I get where I'm going.
Yeah when I get where I'm going.
