A Song for Knox




by Brian Franklin

"A Song for Knox"

I dreamed I said hello to you a week ago
You smiled at me like I was your best friend
And then you cried, I laughed, you slept, I held you in my arms
And Lord right now, I just don't understand

But Knox, oh no, it's not the end for us
you've gone ahead of us, for now
My soul clings to a better hope, because
our Lord has promised us He'll hold you in His arms
Until we come
or until He comes

And then there was the time when you and Jack just at
and laughed at silent cartoons on the tv screen
And every time I saw you with your mom or dad,
singing songs, upside-down, a smiling face
And I never thought that I'd see those days end
Lord, right now, we just don't understand

But, Knox oh no it's not the end for us
you've gone ahead of us, for now
My soul clings to a better hope, because
our Lord has promised us He'll hold you in His arms
Until we come
or until He comes

On my bed, I remember you
In the watches of the night I speak your name
My God, my God, please don't forsake us now
I cry out to you to hear me as I pray
May we see our little son again someday,
when You wipe all our lonely tears away


But, Knox oh no it's not the end for us
you've gone ahead of us, for now
My soul clings to a better hope, because
our Lord has promised us He'll hold you in His arms
Until we come
or until He comes

Until we come to join you
Until He comes again to take us all away
Until we come to join you
Until He comes again to take us all away
when we'll all be home togehter, some sweet day

Hey friend, thinking and praying - I know these are particularly rough days. Have been anticipating them for you and have been praying - will continue - as usual. :)Can I call?
Love you.

Praying that God will grant you the strength and peace you need to endure this time of remembrance.
