“Until Then”

by Paul O’Rear

The day you came into my life, my world began anew.
I didn’t know that love could run as deep as I love you.
Someday you will spread your wings and fly into the wind,
And I promise I will take good care of you … until then.

Until then, my arms will hold you each and every day.
Until then, we’ll make some memories along the way.
Someday you will spread your wings and fly into the wind,
And I promise I will take good care of you … until then.

The day the doctors broke the news, my heart was torn in two,
I couldn’t bear the thought of maybe one day losing you.
Every day I pray that you’ll be healed and whole again,
And I’ll be right here beside you all the way … until then.

Until then, my arms will hold you each and every day.
Until then, we’ll fight for life, and hope, and hug, and pray.
Every day I pray that you’ll be healed and whole again,
And I’ll be right here beside you all the way … until then.

The day you went to heaven left a hole inside my heart,
And every day the emptiness reminds me we’re apart.
One day I will see you, and I’ll hold you once again,
And I’ll keep your love and laughter in my heart … until then.

Until then, my heart will hold you each and every day.
Until then, my memories of you will light my way.
One day I will see you, and I’ll hold you once again,
And I’ll keep your love and laughter in my heart … until then.
