I come in to tuck her in
I’m so tired from where I’ve been
Doing all I can to stay awake
As she goes on about her day
I hang on every word she says
She reaches out and puts her hand in mine

For a moment, we are here together
And it hits me that this won’t last forever

We can’t own it
We just get to hold it for a while
This life
We can’t keep it
Or save it for another time
This life

He was always there for me
Now he’s fighting just to breathe
I tell him it’s ok to let go
As I look into his eyes
I know that this won’t be the last time
But for now, we’re taking different roads

For a moment, we are here together
And it hits me that this won’t last forever

What we give is all we have
How we love is what will last
And this hope we know will carry us through
This life

We were never meant to stay
We don’t have to be afraid
Of what is waiting on the other side
Of this life
