The Last Prayer

She clasped my hand as I sat beside her on the bed,
as I do now on this couch five years later.
I see now that a love like hers never leaves…
Even through the tears, the loneliness,
the void; oh a love like that never leaves
my sweet.

It was a new job, to start the new year right.
That smile so bright and gentle, shining
hope. Hope Danny, hope.

Grandmother I feel you every day in the sun.
And when I miss you and tremble in sorrow,
I know I will see the sun shine tomorrow.
