Story behind the song
Preparing for loss, preparing for grieving.
Running out of time
May the road rise up to meet you,
may the wind be at your back,
May his peace forever latch your door.
Let happiness be with you now,
and bless you evermore,
and bless you evermore.
Everything I want for you,
Is heavens love to shine upon you.
I wish for one more day with you,
but were running out of time.
Those we love dont go away.
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard yet always near.
Beyond lifes last frontier.
You couldnt stay another day,
To laugh with us, to smile or play,
What is undone must stay that way,
and loose ends slip away.
Departures heartache none can heal;
Love leaves a memory none can steal
I bow my head and wipe my tears,
As you cross that finish line.
And leave us sadly out of time.
Our hourglass is broken,
Our sand is gone.
Not really sure how to move on,
And youll do what you must
And Ill do what I can,
stand up again,
to stick around,
stay on this ride.
You shaped my life for all to see,
Forever etched in memory
I know in my heart youll be free,
to cross that finish line,
while we are running out of time.
