    I am closer than a thought.
    More present than the wind.
    I am that child
    That God will let you see again.

    Victory was not in my struggle.
    God knows I really tried.
    Victory is in the knowing
    That I'll see you on the other side.

    So Moma don't despair.
    I know life seems unfair.
    Please...wipe away that tear.
    I have lots of friends here.

    Whenever you're feeling alone,
    And the pain has clearly grown.
    Remember...

    I am closer than a thought.
    More present than the wind.
    I am that child
    That God will let you see again.
