Daddy's Song

She felt a shake, opened her eyes, time to get out of bed,
wishing she could roll over instead.
Kids to school, cat let in, face the day ahead.
Life seemed so much easier when she was asleep in bed.

Phone call comes, it's mama with bad news, need to come right away,
there's no time to lose.
Rush to the car, can't find her keys, tears welling up in her eyes,
dumping out her purse, she prays, "Daddy live please".

Hospital entrance, what's that smell, nurses in white dresses,
patients using the call bells.
Mama's face, Dr's words, crying oh so hard.
Life seemed so much easier when she was asleep in bed.

She lives her life for her family, giving all she can.
Never asking much in return, relying on God's plan.
But today she says a prayer, feeling oh so blue.
"Please let my Daddy live", knowing there was nothing else to do.

Long hours waiting, family comes in, kids picked up from school,
wishing she were anywhere but here.
Hands are held, coffee poured, silent prayers are all said.
Life seemed so much easier when she was asleep in bed.

Silent sighs, breath is held, they hang on the dr's words,
"it was ok, this time".
Hugs are freely given, grateful tears are shed.
She smiles at her kids, hugs them all tightly and kisses thier heads.

That night, as they looked up at the moon, she promises each the kids,
"Papa will come home soon."
Now off to bed, brush your teeth, tomorow there is school.
Laying in bed, hubby close, time just seems to stand still,
grateful for each moment, of life there was yet to live.

She felt a shake, opened her eyes, time to get out of bed,
wishing she could roll over instead.
Kids to school, cat let in, face the day ahead.
Life seemed so much easier when she was asleep in bed.
