“A Picture of Me” (Without You)

Imagine a world where no music was playing

And think of a church with nobody praying

Have you ever looked up at a sky with no blue?

Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you

Have you walked in a garden where nothing was growing?

Or sat by a river where nothing was flowing

If you’ve seen a red rose unkissed by the dew

Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you

Can you picture heaven with no angles singing?

Or a quiet Sunday morning with no church bells ringing

If you’ve watched as a heart of a child breaks in two

Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you

Good Night Sweet Mama

“You are missed beyond words”
