Smiling Down

The past week or so has been absolute hell for me. I only anticipate it getting worse as the year anniversary gets closer. I have good days and bad, but lately it seems as if they have all been pretty bad. I can usually pick myself up and keep going. This has not been the case lately. I feel like I am stuck in a deep dark pit and am desperately trying to get out. That is when I thought of the words to this song. Yes, Karissa is holding on to the hand of Jesus and she is right by his side...lucky girl.

One of my closest friends, Gaylin, sent me the lyrics to this song back in September. It was written for two different couples who were both dealing with the tragic loss of a child.


"Smiling Down"

You make it so hard on yourself
But theres nobody else
That could ever understand
The feelings that you felt
I could hear you think about
All the time I was around
If you could only see me now
I'm right here looking down

So next time that you feel like crying
Next time you don't feel like trying
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you
In the morning you don't feel like rising
Next time you feel like compromising
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you

I know you won't forget
All the time we got to spend
Just because it's been a while
Doesn't mean that its the end
So right here and now
I'll swear you a vow
That I will always be with you
Whenever you feel down
Nothing ever will come between us
Now I'm holding on to the hand of Jesus

So next time that you feel like crying
Next time you don't feel like trying
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you
In the morning you don't feel like rising
Next time you feel like compromising
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you

I'll be right there looking down
Even when the shine don't shine
I'll be right there looking down
All along the winter night
I'll be right there looking down
With a smile on me face
I'll be right there with my arms open wide
Right here on Jesus' side

So next time that you feel like crying
Next time you don't feel like trying
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you
In the morning you don't feel like rising
Next time you feel like compromising
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you
