Before We Said Hello

Before we Said Hello
Words & Music by Steve Siler

We were so excited
What anticipation
We’d prepared a place for you inside our hearts
Oh, how you were wanted
We had plans and dreams
Then in an instant it all came apart

Like a flower that was crushed before it could bloom
Like a story just begun that ended much too soon
We grieve love interrupted that has no place to go
We said goodbye before we said hello

They say you’re in Heaven
and someday I’ll see you
But that doesn’t fill the ache I’m feeling now
Your life was so special
Such a miracle
Now life goes on but I just don’t know how

Like a flower that was crushed before it could bloom
Like a story just begun that ended much too soon
We grieve the child who’s living in our hearts but not our home
We said goodbye before we said hello

You are my angel and we’ll never be apart
I may not hold in my arms but I’ll still hold you in my heart

Like a flower that was crushed before it could bloom
Like a story just begun that ended much too soon
We grieve the hopes cut short
The memories we’ll never know
Why? Oh why?
Did we have to say goodbye before we said hello

Heaven's Playground

Heaven’s Playground
Words & Music by Becky Nordquist, Steve Siler, & Tony Wood

Sometimes I imagine
a sea of shining faces
Warm sunshine and blue skies
and children running free
And suddenly I’m smiling
to see you there with Jesus
to know you’re home and happy
means everything to me

That’ll you’ll never know pain
You’ll only know love
You’ll never know tears
in the land of joy above
Where laughter is the only sound
on Heaven’s playground

Sometimes when I miss you
sorrow casts a shadow
I linger with the sadness
and feel the things I feel
But then I remember
in this very moment
You’re living in His presence
and forever you are healed

and you’ll never know pain
You’ll only know love
You’ll never know tears
in the land of joy above
Where laughter is the only sound
on Heaven’s playground

The only way these arms could let you go
is to know whose arms would take you in
The one who loved you first will hold you
‘til I hold you again

You’ll never know pain
You’ll only know love
You’ll never know tears
in the land of joy above
Where laughter is the only sound
Where laughter is the only sound
on Heaven’s playground

Absolutely beautiful!! This is perfect!! I shared it with a friend who lost her little guy about a month ago. I had a miscarriage in between my 2 youngest and it really puts everything into words!

This puts words to my ache . . . finally
