Last night while I was trying to sleep,
My sons voice I did hear,
I opened my eyes and looked around,
But he did not appear.

He said, "Mum, you've got to listen,
You've got to understand,
God didn't take me from you mum,
He only took my hand.

When I called out in pain that day,
The moment that I died,
He reached down and took my hand,
And pulled me to His side.

He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain
My body was hurt that badly,
I could never be the same.

My search is nearly over now,
I've found happiness within,
All the answers to my empty dreams
And all that might have been.

I love you all and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever,
But my spirit will never die.

And so, you must all go on now,
And live, and undersand...
God didn't take me from you,
He only took my hand."
He Only Took My Hand
