Songs

Here are a list of songs that make us think of our sons, give us hope, or remind us of our partners in this journey. The links will take you to YouTube to listen to the songs.  Some of the songs were ones we found on these playlists and others that just came up as we continued on our journeys.

“Godspeed little man
Sweet Dreams little man
Oh, my love will fly to you each night on angel’s wings”

“Give me a minute, I don’t know what I’d say in it
Probably just stare, happy just to be there holding your face
Beam me up,
Let me be lighter, I’m tired of being a fighter”

  • Fly” by Celine Dion

“Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore”

“So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life”

  • Thy Will” by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family

“I don’t want to think
I may never understand
That my broken heart is a part of your plan”

“Then you should always know
Wherever you may go, no matter where you are
I never will be far away”

“Even though sometimes
This is hard to tell,
And the fine is
Just as frustrating as hell,
All will be well.”

“Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go”

“I’ll see you again
You never really left
I feel you walk beside me
I know I’ll see you again”

  • Timshel”  by Mumford & Sons

“But you are not alone in this”

“How long do you want to be loved?
Is forever enough?
‘Cause I’m never, never giving you up ”

“You will rest your head, your strength once saving.
And when you wake you will fly away,
Holding tight to the legs of all your angels.
Goodbye my love, into your blue, blue eyes,”

“Oh, please don’t go
Let me have you just one moment more”

  • Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals

“I can’t look at the stars
They make me wonder where you are
Stars, up on Heaven’s boulevard”

“And I will wait, I will wait for you”

“Sadness is just love wasted, with no little heart to place it inside”

“Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She’ll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh,
And life ain’t always what you think it ought to be, no
Ain’t even grey, but she buries her baby”

  • Still” by Gerrit Hofsink

“Sometimes I find myself wondering what to do
With this pain that I’m going through
But I know one day, God will take me away
And I’m coming home to you”

“Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace”

“You were with me all the time
I’ll be with you one day”

“Still, when you’re heart is sore
And the heavens pour
Like a willow bending with the storm, you’ll make it”

“Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start “

“You were just a small bump unborn, for four months then torn from life
Maybe you were needed up there but we’re still unaware as why”

“I will see you again, oh
                                                                                                                      This is not where it ends                                                                                                                       
I will carry you with me, oh
                                                                                                             ‘Till I see you again”

  • Held” by Natalie Grant

“This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held”

“Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice
You’ve made it now”

SONGS THAT MAKE ME THINK OF ASHER/THE LOSS OF HIM:

“my love embraces you long after we have said our goodbyes”

“Beloved Child My heart is yours”

“So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life”

“I could hold you
For a million years
To make you feel my love”

“Somehow I ended up here
I don’t wanna think
I may never understand
That my broken heart is a part of your plan”

“In the blink of an eye, it can change your life.
And it never even slows down.”

“’Cause here on earth it feels like everything good is missing since you left
And here on earth everything’s different, there’s an emptiness”

“Oh, please don’t go
Let me have you just one moment more”

“And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah”

  • Joanne” by Lady Gaga (When I was pregnant, he always moved around to Lady Gaga)

“Heaven’s not
Ready for you
Every part
Of my aching heart
Needs you more
Than the angels do”

“Be still and know that I’m with you
Be still and know that I am here”

“Where pleasure moments hung before
The takeover
The sweeping insensitivity of this
Still life”

“You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here”

“I fall to pieces, I’m falling
Fell to pieces and I’m still falling”

“I’ll find my own way back
Back to the past tense”

“You are now my home sweet home
Forever a lost boy at last”

“Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on”

  • For Good” by Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith

“You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart”

“I can’t pretend these tears
Aren’t overflowing steadily
I can’t prevent this hurt from
Almost overtaking me
But I will stand and say goodbye”

“I’ll take this piece of you
And hold for all eternity
For just one second I felt whole
As you flew right through me”

” Life ain’t always what you think it oughta be, no
Ain’t even grey, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life,”

“All I wanted was you”

“Although the sun will never shine the same
I’ll always look to a brighter day”

“These wounds won’t seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase”

“Cause you’ll be safe in these arms of mine
Just call my name on the edge of the night
And I’ll run to you, I’ll run to you”

” Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part”

“Just let me cry a little bit longer
I ain’t gon’ smile if I don’t want to
Hey, man, we all can’t be like you
I wish we were all rose-colored too”

“Once you leave me you were really gone
Give me something to remember you by
All that’s here is what you left behind”

“But you are gone- not for good but for now
Gone for now feels a lot like gone for good”

“But you’re gone away and you left me far behind
You’re gone away, can’t get you outta my mind
You’re gone, away, and I am here to stay
Away”

“Is this the end of everything we know?
This is the end of everything I am”

“I love making you believe
What you get is what you see
But I’m so fake happy”

  • Proud” by Lea Michele

“And so I, I never want to let you down
You live so deep in the heart of me
I just need to tell you now
All I want to do is make you proud”

“With one more look at you
I want one more look at you”

“ I knew you before I knew your name
I loved you before I saw your face
I longed for you for all of that time
And I held your heart in mine
I kissed you a hundred million times
I tasted the tears that I cried
I held you my beautiful child
And I’ll keep your heart in mine”

“It’s hard to deal with the pain of losin’ you everywhere I go
But I’m doing it”

Can there be a day beyond this night?
I don’t know anymore what is true
I can’t find my direction, I’m all alone
The only star that guided me was you
How to rise from the floor?
But it’s not you I’m rising for
Just do the next right thing”

  • Tin Man” by Miranda Lambert

“Hey there, Mr. Tin Man
I’m glad we talked this out
You can take mine if you want it
It’s in pieces now
By the way there, Mr. Tin Man
If you don’t mind the scars
You give me your armor
And you can have my heart”

“How long will I love you
As long as stars are above you
And longer if I may”

“In my dreams, I’ll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart, there will always be a place for you, for all my life
I’ll keep a part of you with me
And everywhere I am, there you’ll be”

SONGS THAT REMIND ME OF HUBBY:

“When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy”

“When my heart feels naked
No strength, too weak
I could use some saving
And you’re love’s so strong”

“It’s not losing it all
If we have each other
In the end it’s all
In the end it’s all that matters”

SONGS THAT REMIND ME OF THE SUPPORT WE RECEIVED:

“No, we can’t carry this for you
But you can stand if you want to
Or fall if you want to
I do feel the same as you”

“For all the air that’s in your lungs
For all the joy that is to come
For all the things that you’re alive to feel
Just let the pain remind you hearts can heal”

“Tell me all your secrets, tell me all your fears
I won’t push you away, I’ll only pull you near
No I won’t judge you
And I’ll help you through”

“I know it hurts
It’s hard to breathe sometimes
These nights are long
You’ve lost the will to fight

Is anybody out there?
Can you lead me to the light
Is anybody out there?
Tell me it’ll all be alright

You are not alone
I’ve been here the whole time singing you a song
I will carry you, I will carry you”

SONGS THAT GIVE ME HOPE:

“I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousands times again
For you”

“And the blood of these veins isn’t pumping any less than it ever has
And that’s the hope I have the only thing I know that’s keeping me alive”

“Well the sky is finally open, the rain and wind stopped blowin’
But you’re stuck out in the same old storm again
You hold tight to your umbrella, well, darlin’ I’m just tryin’ to tell ya
That there’s always been a rainbow hangin’ over your head”
