When Heaven Held Me

When Heaven Held Me...

The moment he slipped away 
The moment I kissed him goodbye
The moment the shovel scooped the fresh dirt
The moment night fell...
heaven held me

The first Christmas
The first frost
The first spring
The first birthday...
heaven held me

Sitting at the cemetery 
Sitting in the car
Sitting in church
Sitting at the park...
heaven held me

Standing in the rain
Standing in the sunshine
Standing by his grave
Standing in my tears...
heaven held me

Crying in the morning
Crying at noon
Crying in the evening
Crying through the night...
heaven held me

His first breath
His first heartbeat
His final breath
His final heartbeat...
heaven held me

Heaven held me when heaven held him...
