You lay there fighting for each breath
While angels hovered 'round your bed
With open arms like God's own smile
They led you to the light

What a battle you have won
And now your journey has begun
To the land where spirits fly
And your soul will never die

So travel lightly in my heart
You and I will never part
And far beyond this world we see
There's a place for you and me

And I thank my lucky stars
We had a chance to heal our scars
Now I don't have to hang my head
Over things I wish I'd said

So here am I your only son
I'm thinking back on work we've done
You were strong and I was young
Man we had our fights

And everything I felt for you
Has been turned to something new
And this is love I feel today
It will never go away

So travel lightly in my heart
You and I will never part
Far beyond this world we see
There's a place for you and me

And I thank the moon and stars
We had a chance to heal our scars
Now I don't have to hang my head
Over things I wish I'd said

I don't have to hide my tears
I don't have to drown my fears
And I don't have to hang my head
Over things I wish I'd said

No, I don't have to live in dread
Over things I wish I'd said
