Noah, Hello Goodbye. I'll see you on the other side

** You will need to scroll down and pause the blog music so you can listen to the song.. or it might get confusing!

** There is no video- only audio.
This was written by the artist, Michael W. Smith, for friends of his, who lost their son, Noah, as an infant. He could have written it for me.

Here are the lyrics if you want to follow along

Hello, Goodbye- Michael W. Smith

Where's the Navigator of your destiny?
Where is the Dealer of this hand?
Who can explain life and its brevity
'Cause there is nothing here that I can understand

You and I have barely met
And I just don't want to let go of you yet


Noah, hello, goodbye
I will see you on the other side
Noah, sweet child of mine
I will see you on the other side

And so I hold your tiny hand in mine
For the hardest thing I've ever had to face
Heaven calls for you before it calls for me
When you get there, save me a place

A place where I can share your smile
And I can hold you for more than just a while


I think I've shared these lyrics before. But I haven't been able to find an audio version until now- other than the one i bought on itunes.

Hi there !! I just wanted to say thank you so much for your comment. I read your story last night and was brought to tears!! As you read my daughter had Malrotation as well but we luckily got it caught before she lost any bowel. I am so sorry for your loss...I can't even imagine what your going through. But can I just say Noah is GORGEOUS !!!

I just can't hear that song without crying. I can imagine your loss. I have a grandson, he's just 4 months.
