Through this veil of tears
I can see what was suppose to be
Now it's all so clear
Love from you was so real, so true, genuine
Stronger than time

Wipe your tears away
Kiss you every morning
Hear every word you had to say
Are all the things I should have done
While you were here

And now the foolish boy has grown
Into this man, I'm sorry you've never known
I'm not afraid to love, 'cause every beat of my heart
Echoes all those memories from way back when
And the man, I should have been

Wipe your tears away
Kiss you every morning
Hear every word you had to say
Are all the things I should have done
While you were here

Faded dreams of you and me and of our little family
Gone forever my God in heaven
Before the gift of clarity
We pay the price of misery
Why please tell me why?

Her mommy's gone away
But in her eyes, I see you more each day
How can I repay all your love unreturned
From so long, long ago
Now I know

I'll wipe her tears away
Kiss her every morning
Hear every word she has to say
Do all the things that you
Would do if you were here

Brighten her rainy day
Catch her when she's fallen
Say I love you each and every day
Do all the things that you
Would do if you were here

Wipe your tears away
Kiss you every morning
Hear every word you had to say
Are all the things I should have done
While you were here
