Story Behind the Song

I wrote this for a friend about her son who died in the military.

Lyrics

REMEMBER ME
Carlene Thissen, Copyright 2009


One dark and lonely day, Michael looked up toward the sky
Clouds parted and revealed a cross of pure sunlight
A pathway straight to heaven he'd forgotten long ago
And a gentle voice spoke to him, soft and low,


I cleared a path for you, So you can see
And if you lose your way
And if you lose your way
And if you lose your way ---- remember me.


War came and Michael trained to strike past enemy lines
His Apache crashed and cut a path through tall thick pines
Metal merged with wood to leave his family a sign
The trees were gone, except for one, where a cross had formed

I cleared a path for you, So you can see
And if you lose your way
And if you lose your way
And if you lose your way ---- remember me.

BRIDGE:

His co-pilot found him lying there, eyes open toward the sun
In his kit they found two bibles, and pictures of his children.


VERSE 3:

Ever since that day, his wife and mother cried
'Til clouds parted and revealed a cross of pure sunlight
And a feather floated gently down, into an outstretched hand
They knew it came from Michael's wing
And now they sing,

I cleared a path for you, So you can see
And if you lose your way
And if you lose your way
And if you lose your way ---- remember me
And if you lose your way ---- remember me.
