about

My sister battled with cancer for 14 months and despite the faithful prayers of many friends and family, she went home to be with the Lord. This song was written in the weeks leading up to her death as I began to realize that healing would come but it would be a healing that is painful to those of us who would be left behind.

For a Christian, death is the ultimate healing and while it is a joyous occasion in the heavens, it is a painful joy felt by those left behind. And yet, we grieve with the hope of a reunion in heaven.

lyrics

I prayed 'til my voice was gone
Begging God to honor my faith
And watch as your final breath
Like an eagle carried your soul away
It seemed healing had failed
As heaven sat still

Sometimes healing hurts
Sometimes joy brings pain
'Cause I know you're in His presence
But you're not here with me
Though it hurts to know you're gone
You are in a better place
Finally healing has come

My tears have been food for days
As I struggle to try and move on
It feels like I'm leaving you
Even though you have already gone
But the truth is I'm only moving closer to you.

You're breathing in heaven's
And feeling no sorrow there
And not a single tear is falling anymore
I'll see you again someday
And know that the prayer you prayed
Has been answered as we walk on heaven's shore

Sometimes healing hurts
Sometimes joy brings pain
'cause I know you're in His presence
But you're not here with me
Though it hurts to know you're gone
You are in a better place
Finally healing has come.
