Save a Place for me

(My mom found a picture of Sophie and mam maw - yea)
Last Thursday I was driving to work. I was flipping thru radio stations. I never can really settle on one particular station because they all talk way too much. I flipped to the local Christian station and they were interviewing Matthew West. I normally would flip it because I was just looking for some music, but his story intrigued me so I listened. Well they asked him to play a song from his upcoming CD (which was released yesterday). Below is the song I heard. It made me cry. I was a mess on the way to work. I missed my mam maw so much and this song made me hurt. He wrote this song for his grandmother. Even though it made me sad I'm glad I heard it. Each time I hear it, it makes me feel a little bit better knowing that one day I will see her again.

"Save A Place For Me"
by Matthew West from the album Something to Say

Don't be mad if I cry
It just hurts so bad sometimes
'Cause everyday it's sinking in
And I have to say goodbye all over again
You know I bet it feels good to have the weight of this world off your shoulders now
I'm dreaming of the day when I'm finally there with you

Save a place for me
Save a place for me
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon
Save a place for me
Save some grace for me
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon

I have asked the question why
But I guess the answer's for another time
So instead I'll pray with every tear
And be thankful for the time I had you here
And I wanna live my life just like you did
Make the most of my time just like you did
And I wanna make my home up in the sky
Just like you did
Oh, but until I get there
Until I get there
