When my grandfather passed, I was too broken for human help. I needed my Savior to help guide me through healing and the Holy Spirit truly moved in me and I believe blessed these lyrics that helped
my whole family move on without my Opa. I love and miss him everyday. Here's a link to my soundcloud where you can hear the Audio. https://soundcloud.com/hannah-saige-16898428/while-hes-gone

When I feel
Like all my strength is gone
and I fall down
And I can't go on
Come save me, come save me
Here I am
 
And yeah I know
You were the anchor for his soul
and everyday he lived, he knew You more
He is with you, he is with you
And here I am
 
Despite all my anxious thoughts
And despite how many times I've broken down
You're still holding me, You're still loving me
While he's gone
 
Despite my loss, and my anxious, worried thoughts
You are the Comforter of Man
And You hold me in your hand
Be with me, be with me
Here I am
 
I come to You with the heaviest of hearts
And I don't know what to do
And I don't know where to start
I am broken, I am broken
But here I am
 
 
I wrote this song to the Lord when my grandfather passed. It was too hard to write about Opa and all he had done for me. So I wrote to God and became very raw with Him. I realized that the Lord would be the only one who could see me through the whole healing process. Knowing my Opa knew the Lord provided a certain amount of comfort that I decided to cling onto while it felt like the world around me was collapsing. I wrote this song very quickly; the words seemed to bubble out of me faster than I could write them. Opa was like a father to me when my dad was in the Navy and even after Mom and Dad got married. I was going to him for advice almost until the day he was hospitalized. I knew I wanted to write about Opa but also have it be applicable to other times of loss. I wanted this to be a blessing to my family who were all grieving with me. I wanted to emphasize the encouragement the Lord provides especially in your darkest hour.
