Who You'd Be Today

Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
I feel you everywhere I go.
I see your smile, I see your face,
I hear you laughin' in the rain.
I still can't believe you're gone.

It ain't fair you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell that I've been through,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who'd you be today?

Would you see the world? Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family,
I wonder what would you name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue,
I feel like I can talk to you,
An' I know it might sound crazy.

It ain't fai: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell that I've been through,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

Today, today, today.
Today, today, today.
Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
The only thing that gives me hope,
Is I know I'll see you again some day.

Some day, some day, some day.

Whenever I hear this song I tear up because I think of my brother, Erich. He passed away Oct. 16, 2005. I think about who he'd be today and the first thing that comes to mind is he would be laughing and joking with the rest of us. He would be that amazing brother who would almost be 30 years old, still bringing joy into our lives. He would probably be a theological teacher or work with the church in some way.

I love you!

I know no words help, but as I was reading this I was just thinking. He is probably up there with Tyson talking about football having a great time. I can see Ty laughing and getting all excited just how I am sure you can see Erich. Love ya, Linds
