In Your Heart is Where I'll Always Be

Story Behind The Song

My grandmother raised me for nine years of my life, from age 7 to 16. She worked two jobs to make sure I went to church school so I won't get into any trouble. Two years before graduating high school I left the country to live with my mom in Massachusetts. I told my grandmother she needed to slow down and save money for herself. I missed her so much over the years, but we kept in close contact. I love my mother, but I had something extra special with my grandmother. She came up to Massachusetts in 2001 to get treatment for a tumor. The doctors said there was nothing they could do. In her last days she stay in New York where my aunt cared for her. In our last communication she let me know how much she love me and ask me to be strong. She said she would always be in my heart. I miss her so much still. She taught me so much. I see her in people's smile. She had so much joy, so much energy. In spite of seeing her sick the last time I saw her, every time I think of her, all I can see is her smile. This song was pure inspiration from the love she gave me and the love I have for her. She will always be in my heart. She passed away January 2, 2002 on a cold winter day. This song is dedicated to Mrs. Daisy (mama) whose life and love blossoms in those she shared her life with.

Lyrics

My love for you is so strong
My love with you is where I belong
I've treasured every moment spent with you
But the sands of time shows I?m due

Each day I say you deserve a crown
For you have made my world a beautiful song
Whatever role your life will take on
Continue making wonderful songs

We have a love that was meant to be
You?re the gift that made my love so free
Please be strong for in your heart is where I?ll always be

There?ll be a time when I?ll have to say goodbye
As each day passes, my candle is bright
But when it dims, it is not the end
For the love shared will transcend

Now when its time for you to move on
Know deep in your heart you do me no wrong
For nature blossom every spring
Starting where winter has left clean

We have a love that was meant to be
You?re the gift that made my love so free
Please be strong for in your heart is where I?ll always be

We have a love that was meant to be
You?re the gift that made my love so free
Please be strong for in your heart is where I?ll always be

Please be strong for in your heart is where I?ll always be
