Only Heaven Knows

I walked with you down the pebbled, dusty road,
I found myself praying to you

hold my hand,
hug me tight,
shower me with your words of wisdom,
under the heavens,
here on earth

It’s not fair,
I mourn the loss of you

dear god,
why did you take only father I knew?
I know,
don’t remind me I am grown,
I miss my grandfather,
only heaven knows

I pray for guidance,
For protection,
Strength,
A bit of faith,
Our life is about to change

oh I know it will all be fine,
what I would give for just an outside look,
a little reassurance into the future,
a vision of health,
of joy

Miracles happen every day,
Just to wake up breathing is a day of grace

to have love,
support,
a hand to hold,
someone to cup your fears,
and drink them away

Maybe I should have paid more attention in church,
Maybe I should have found one faith,
The rebel in me,
Always looking for something new

I have love,
I have the universe by my side,
stars guiding my life,
my twin flame,
my combined family

The selfish little girl in me,
Wishing by some big miracle,
My grandfather could still be here with me

the divine,
the belief,
faith,
love,
strength

You are always here with me,
In my heart,
My thoughts,
Holding me,
Only heaven knows.

I miss the curve of your hip,
The way my lips trace,
The beauty mark that stands against your skin

I crave your breath,
Your moan,
Your hands gripped between my hair,
My temples

The power,
Gentleness,
The mix,
Of souls

The secrets,
Nobody knows

I miss our dance,
The way the ocean waves,
Tango against the sand,
And break against the rocks,
The flare
Commanding all to stare

There is elegance,
Grace,
Taste,
In the exoticness,
We share.
