One More Day
by Sherry Lois Fionda

I had a wish for one more day
that our time would just stand still
but our time together has run out
it was out of our hands... this was God's will

I am broken but not angry
it's just so hard to let you go
love can make you selfish
but pain can make grow

I shall treasure every moment
every minute that we shared
I'll keep them locked in a special place
hidden beneath my tears

I will be strong, and you'll be proud
for my strength has come from you
unconditional was love
the kind only known by few

In this end comes a beginning
for we will never again be apart
your memories will live through me
as your love lives in my heart

Together we weep as one
your tears fall from my eyes
you whispered the day had come
it was time to say, "good-bye"

How could you go
when there's so much I need to say
grant me this one wish-
please give me one more day

So many years I let slip by
so many pages left unread
the love I kept inside
are the words left unsaid

A picture of your face
in a frame within my mind
timeless are the memories
of the love you left behind

I'll take you with me- 
beside me is where you will stand
I'll never again walk alone
for we'll be walking hand and hand

I had a wish for one more day
that our time would just stand still
I realize now, in the love you gave,
my wish has been fullfilled.
