Jealous of The Angels…

During my Mom’s Wake Ceremony, I heard this song and it struck a cord within me. I felt both sadness from the loss and also uplifted at the same time knowing that Mom isn’t suffering anymore and that she’s now with Our Lord until we meet again.

I didn’t know today would be our last
Or that I’d have to say goodbye to you so fast
I’m so numb, I can’t feel anymore
Prayin’ you’d just walk back through that door and tell me that I was only dreamin’
You’re not really gone as long as I believe there will be another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me
And I will hold on tight
It’s not my place to question
Only God knows why
I’m just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight you always made my troubles feel so small
And you were always there to catch me when I’d fall
In a world where heroes come and go
Well God just took the only one I know
So I’ll hold you as close as I can
Longing for the day, when I see your face again
But until…
