I Stand Before a Piece of Stone

Written by: HOLLY MOORE

You took your life and left mine behind
It was before God's own time
I stand before a piece of stone

Etched in memory is your name
Feeling numb, how long will this remain?
I stand before a piece of stone

I see others that have come and gone
The flowers galore represent their song
I stand before a piece of stone

You traded your life to go to heaven
If I had known your pain was so laden ~
Mom now stands before a piece of stone
