Before I begin, I would just like to say
That I’m sorry that these words are finding your ears far too late
I just never saw it coming and I didn’t know what to do
And now I wake up every morning to a world without you

Your empty chair’s not rocking
Anymore like it used to
But the stories that they tell
Would do more than bring life to you
They tell tales of your past, tales of your dreams
Tales of all your hopes and your memories
We look at pictures, laugh and cry
And wish that you would be right here by our side

I really miss you
But I will let you go
Just like you asked me to
Not too long ago
With your remaining breaths fading
I took your hand as you laid by me
You said “Miss me
But let me go”

I can see the footprints that you left for me
And I’ll do my best to follow them
You were so soft spoken so when you said something
Everyone was at attention

And I know this hurts so I won’t drag on
But I just really wanted to say
That I love you and I think about you all the time.
I swear I see your face at least once every day.

I really miss you
But I will let you go
Just like you asked me to
Not too long ago
With your remaining breaths fading
I took your hand as you laid by me
You said “Miss me
But let me go”

On your dying day I couldn’t be there
And I don’t know if it’s something you’ll ever forgive me for
But when the news came, I swear the whole world stopped
I just stared blankly into space and my jaw dropped
And I’m begging you for one day please come back
I don’t care if it’s only for one day just please come back.

I really miss you
But I’m never let you go
I know you wanted me to
But I can’t just let you go
I’m gonna hold on to that last breath forever
We’re gonna always be together
I’ll keep your voice in my ear
I’ll always keep you right here
With your remaining breaths fading
I took your hand as you laid by me
I do miss you
But I will let you go.
