Story Behind the Song

My wife and the mother of my three daughters died in 2004 after an 8 year battle with cancer. I came across the following passage: "(B)ehold, the kingdom of God is among you." Lk 17, 21. An astounding thing to think about. It gave me the idea for this song which I wrote for my daughters.

For My Daughters ...


LYRICS:

VERSE 1
SOMETIMES I WONDER IF YOU CAN SEE US NOW.
OR WOULD THAT BE TOO PAINFUL? WOULD IT STEAL YOUR PARADISE?
ARE YOU HERE WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER, OR ARE YOU SITTIN' ON A CLOUD?
KNOWING YOU I GUESS I'D HAVE TO SAY, I THINK

CHORUS:
HEAVEN ISN'T FAR AWAY. IT'S JUST THAT WE CAN'T SEE
THE KINGDOM OF GOD AMONG US. NO, HEAVEN ISN'T FAR AWAY.

VERSE 2
WERE YOU AT MY GRADUATION SEVERAL (MANY) YEARS AGO?
DO YOU HEAR ME WHEN I TALK TO YOU WHEN I'M FEELIN' KIND OF LOW?
[FEMALE] WILL YOU BE THERE WATCHIN'ME & DADDY WHEN HE WALKS ME DOWN THE AISLE?
[or MALE] WILL YOU BE THERE WATCHING ME & MY GIRL WHEN WE'RE WALKIN' DOWN THE AISLE?
I BELIEVE YOU WILL AND THAT YOU HAVE BEEN WITH ME ALL THE WHILE. I THINK

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

WHERE YOU THERE FOR ALL MY BIRTHDAYS? WERE YOU WITH ME EACH CHRISTMASTIDE?
WILL YOU BE NEXT TO ME WHEN I HOLD MY BABIES FOR THE FIRST TIME? I BELIEVE THAT

CHORUS
HEAVEN ISN'T FAR AWAY. IT'S JUST THAT WE DON'T SEE
THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AMONG US.
NO, HEAVEN ISN'T FAR, OH MOM YOU AREN'T FAR.
YOU AND HEAVEN AREN'T FAR AWAY.
