I Was There

 

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
Pacing in the hallway
As you came into this world.

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
As you crossed the street alone
On your way to school.

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
As you stepped onto the stage
To get your diploma.

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
As you walked down the isle
To your future.

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
As your family grew
And you began to age.

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
As you stood near the grave
Saying goodbye.

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
As your children said goodbye,
And you found yourself alone.

I was there,
Couldn’t you see me…
As you took your last breath
In this life.

I am here,
Now you can see me…
As hand in hand we step
Into Eternity.
