    I wish you were here
    You would tell me what to do
    Point me in the right direction
    Give me guidance
    Listen to me talk, cry, and ask questions
    Give me answers to those questions
    Remind me that I need to pray
    Tell me to ask for forgiveness for my sins

    Goodness, I wish you were here, I miss you so
    You'd cradle me in your arms and rock me until I fell asleep
    Run your fingers through my hair saying keep the wind at your back and press frorward
    Reminding me always to pray

    Goodness, I wish you were here, I need you so
    You'd let me know to keep my feet rooted in my faith
    You'd give me that hug I so badly need always just at the right time
    You'd let me know all things are possible through Christ Jesus

    Goodness, I wish you were here, I love you so
    Here to wipe away my fears
    Here so I could see your face again
    I never really said goodbye
    Here so I could tell you over and over again that I love you so
    Here so I could hear you say I love you too

    I wish you were here, GRANNY
    I miss you
    I need you
    and I love you so!

    Dedicated to my GRANNY, my stronghold.

    This was so heartfelt, I sometimes feel the same when I think of some of my loved ones who have passed on. Touching piece.
