Once

One day, you will wake up,

and I won't be there.

 

One day, God will call me to heaven,

and I won't be there.

 

One day, our children will grow old enough

that we won't have to worry about them,

and I won't be there.

 

One day you will be so sad, your heart aches,

and I won't be there.

 

One day, the kids will ask, "How's Dad?"

and I won't be there.

 

One day, you'lll see a book on a hilltop, 

and I won't be there. 

 

One day, you'll clutch my picture with sadness,

and I will not be there.

 

One day, you'll come home to heaven

and we'll be there,

together.
