Just One More Day¡K Written by Dr. Larry L. Thompson in honor of his wife Cynthia
Lord, You honored me the moment she came into my life
I had no idea You were preparing her to be my wife.
She was so young and innocent, and beautiful in every way
We spent our days together, I prayed; ¡§just one more day.¡¨
I was so blessed that August day she became my bride
So gracefully she approached the altar to be at my side
I held her tight and whispered, ¡§Listen to what I say¡K
Loving you forever¡¦s not enough; I need just one more day.¡¨
In our youth we grew in our understanding of love
Through the laughter, the tears, and blessings from above
Our days full of light, the darkness seemed so far away
Yet I wouldn¡¦t sleep without praying, ¡§O¡¦ God, Just one more day.¡¨
Lord, just when I thought we couldn¡¦t possibly love more
You gave us Taylor and Jennifer to cherish and adore.
They filled our lives with such love in every way¡K
Then our girls became women, I cried, ¡§just one more day.¡¨
¡§They grow up so fast¡¨ was the advice we were told
I dismissed their counsel-we were young and they were old
Now I stare at your pictures knowing you¡¦re miles away
You have no idea what I would give for just one more day.
At first glance it seems so cruel, this cycle of life
I struggle with the aging process, seeing pain and strife
I¡¦m a stranger to my own dad as I hold him and pray,
¡¥Dear God, if we could just sit and visit, just one more day.¡¦
It would be so easy to become bitter and cold
When you watch those you love growing feeble and old
Yet as believers we mustn¡¦t let our broken hearts stray
But resolve to walk in His Spirit and His word day by day.
It¡¦s His Word that gives us strength for the days ahead
Walking in obedience to His truth we are led.
I shall gladly confess, ¡¥this is the day He has made¡¦
For in my Savior¡¦s unfailing love I will not be afraid.
So I will take the hand of this godly woman I adore
With assurance we know, in Christ there¡¦s much more!
Cynthia, my lover, my friend; this final thought I say
In Christ our love is eternal and there¡¦s always one more day!
