Someday...

Country music is known for it's drinkin' in bars, dramatic divorces, and sappy love songs with a twang. This one by Kenny Chesney gets the tear rolling down my face every time.


Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
I see your smile, I see your face
I hear your laugh' in the rain
I still can't believe you're gone

It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing, no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder, who you'd be today

Would you see the world
Would you chase your dreams
Settle down with a family
I wonder what would you name your babies
Some days the sky's so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound crazy

It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing, no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder, who you'd be today

Today, Today, Today...
Today, Today, Today...

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know, I'll see you again someday
Someday, Someday...

I love you Jack and I wonder who you'd be today. Happy 2nd Birthday Sweet boy.

Loving and missing you with all my heart,
Mom

I had computer problems yesterday, I thought my comment was saved.

I lit a candle for Jack and thought of you & Mr. H and Jack & Sam. I wish it were different.

Thank oyu for sharing the song. It is so appropriate for our lost babies and other friends who died too young.
