My Missing

My Missing lyrics by Xavier Rudd, a poignant reminder not to miss moments, not to let time slip by…

“I See you sleeping only in my mind
I have been away alone this season
I waste so much time
Thinking of when I would hold you gently
And I’d look into your eyes
And I would be the one to calm your shaking
When you would cry

I miss you in my life
I miss you in my life
I miss you in my life

So miss you in my life
You hide your answers within every smile
Time and time again I’d lose my chances
To reconcile
Even if I had my time over
It would take a while
To reveal all my best intentions
That I let slip by

I miss you in my life
I miss you in my life
I miss you in my life
So miss you in my life.”

Songwriters: Xavier Rudd

In an excerpt from Jack Kornfield Illuminating the Path Through Difficult Times, he says:

“By grieving honorably and tenderly and working our way through our difficulties, our ability to love and feel compassion for ourselves and others deepens, along with the trust that will help us through similar problems in the future.

Breathe. Remember, there are countless others who have suffered in this way and gotten through it. We are not alone. Learning how to survive our present difficulties is one of the few things that will help us to know the right things to say and do when others whom we love suffer as well.”
