Save A Place For Me

This song is on Matthew West's album Something To Say. I've heard it before (I have the album) and then I took the time to actually listen. I really like it.



Save A Place For Me

Don't be mad if I cry
It just hurts so bad sometimes
'Cause everyday it's sinking in
And I have to say goodbye all over again

You know I bet it feels good
To have the weight of this world
Off your shoulders now
I'm dreaming of the day
When I'm finally there with you

Save a place for me, save a place for me
I'll be there soon, I'll be there soon
Save a place for me, save some grace for me
I'll be there soon, I'll be there soon

I have asked the questions why
But I guess the answer's for another time
So instead I pray with every tear
And be thankful for the time I had you here

So you just save a place for me, save a place for me
I'll be there soon, I'll be there soon
Save a place for me, save some grace for me
I'll be there soon, I'll be there soon

I wanna live my life just like you did
Make the most of my time just like you did
And I want to make my home up in the sky
Just like you did, oh, but until I get there
Until I get there

Just save a place for me, save a place for me
'Cause I will be there soon

Save a place for me, save a place for me
I'll be there soon, I'll be there soon

Don't be mad if I cry
It just hurts so bad

I added that song about a month ago on one of my playlists on Youtube. I did think of you and wondered if you had heard it before. I just cry hearing it but I'm glad it gives you some comfort. ~Debbie

Holly,

I just wanted to thank you. Being able to go through everything with you and Carliegh has brought me closer than I have ever been with my kidsand God. My daughter and I realize that God can take us anytime and the time we have together is very precious. Thank you for letting me and my girls come closer together and closer together with god. Please keep your faith strong and remember I love you and God does to. I miss Carliegh to and wish I could have spoiled her like an aunt should.
God bless
Aunt Jenny

Holly, that is a beautiful song. I have not heard it before but do love Matthew West. It just marks another song that we can now consider for Noah's memorial.
My daughter just came up to me and played me that Michael W. Smith song you found "Hello, Goodbye". I had somehow put it on her MP3 player and didn't even realize it. I am happy & sad that I did that. Happy because it gives her another way to think about Noah but sad because I don't want to cause her any undue pain. She sees me struggle and it hurts her to see me upset and crying.
She loves that song as well as the one you posted BTW! She has such a beautiful soul. She will touch hearts as she grows in life & love with our Father in Heaven.
I am thinking & praying for you.

I love you, sweet sister.
