I’ll Hold you in Heaven
To send flowers in memory of Declan John Denman, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
From the very beginning I loved you,
As I made plans to hold you and rock you:
You were tiny and helpless as you lay in my womb,
But something went wrong and soon you were gone;
My young heart was broken, my tears fell like rain,
I’d never known such heartache and pain.
I wonder who you look like, me or your dad,
Do you have my smile and his eyes?
Would you have been big and tall or tiny and small?
We had dreams for you that reached to the skies.
It was long, long ago and I still miss you so,
Thanks to Jesus, I’ll see you in heaven.
I’ll hold you in heaven someday,
When my trials on earth pass away;
The angels have rocked you, the Father watches over you,
I know you’re waiting for me;
I never could hold you or tell you “Goodbye”,
But I’ll hold you in heaven someday.
