How We Are Holding Up


My daddy forgot my name today
It seems so strange to say
This day became eventual
As daddy fades away


Letters on white paper
Not etched into his mind
Just a word, just a word
A word he could not find


Repeating my name
Five, Ten times... gone
Trying to grasp and keep it
Asking, "What went wrong?"


Gone... but forgotten
Blurry time and space
What's in a name, Dad?
See the smile on my face?


We put our trust in God
One hour at a time
We cling onto Dad's spirit
As time erases his mind


Our love knows his heart
A heart that's strong and true
We remember his strength
And the things he used to do


We treasure every moment
We treasure every smile
From dawn to time for bed
Facing each and every trial


Outside a storm is brewing
The world is in a hurry
Unkind words and heartbreak
Stress and work and worry


In the arms of God,
Where we are living still,
Peace returns, enters joy
Blessings are so REAL!


My Daddy forgot my name today
And, that's OK with me
Believing in what God has planned
Is all we will ever need
