But for right now, my body’s aching;
But for right now, my heart is breaking.
Oh, I know that we’ll meet again in a more perfect world –
How I’ll hold you then…
But how I wish it could be here and now.
When a dear friend lost her last child to stillbirth, I wrote this song to support and comfort her. A few years later, this song was there to shore me up when I faced a similar challenge. For anyone facing the pain of grief: “Maybe this vision will be enough, To get me through when times are tough, And when these feelings get so raw and rough, Here and now.”
