A Blessing in Disguise

Today I couldn't get you out of my head,
My heart feels heavy from the sorrow.

Some days are better, some days are worse,
But no days are you forgotten.

Where was your strength to live?
Why couldn't you have fought harder?

Where do I direct my anger?
It is so easy to point blame.

Am I so blind I don't see
The blessing God has given me?

I can not feel your touch,
But I can close my eyes and remember your scent.

I can not hear your voice,
But I can close my eyes and see you smile.

I can not see you lying ill,
But I can close my eyes and see you dancing in heaven!
