A thousand little duties done.
Such duties that we had to do,
Which seemed we never would get through,
But now we see them fully done.
And all the time we thought was long
Is gone–IS GONE–and won’t return,
And many lessons have been learned
In that short time we thought was long.
And now that these sweet days have gone,
I’m having trouble moving on.
So slowly I am moving on,
Shocked, now that these sweet days are gone.
I’m trusting God but feel great pain
And wish I could these days retain.
While endless tears my face now stain,
I’m trusting God with this deep pain.
