“Always” lyrics

“I was standing in the pouring rain one dark November night
Fighting off the bitter cold when she caught my eye
Her face was taut and her eyes were filled and to my surprise
She pulled out a photograph and my heart just stopped inside
She said, “He would have been three today. I miss his smile. I miss his face.”
What was I supposed to say?

But I believe always, always
Our savior never fails
Even when all hope is gone
God knows our pain
And his promise remains.
He will be with you always”

It’s already been three years. I never saw him smile, except in my dreams. It was only in a dream when I saw his eyes open, felt his chest move as he breathed. Some have told me “At least he didn’t die AFTER he was born” as though that is some consolation. As though it hurts my heart less. It doesn’t. I miss him, and I never really got to know him.
