I'm Okay


I’m Okay

Music & Lyrics by Kylee shields


I know it’s been a while since I’ve been here

Brought flowers to your grave and spoke my heart

and though you can’t respond

I can’t help wondering

How it would be

If you were here


I know I’d be different

That your life would change mine

I know I’d see things a different way if you were here


I know we’d have good days

To counter the bad ones

I know there’d be miles and miles of laughter along the way

And so today I came to say

That I’m okay


I miss you most in family picture moments

On random days and times I can’t predict

And though I know God has a plan

I’m wondering

What you can see

And what you can’t


I try to be better

To make your life matter

I try to remember small moments that we shared


I’m working on Listening

To hearts that are hurting

I’m trying to love everyone along the way

And so today I came to say

That I’m okay


I’m hoping there are days you hear my heart

And know that I still miss you though it’s years we’ve been apart


Please know that you’ve changed me

Just knowing you loved me

All the memories we shared make me smile


I’m longing for heaven

For our grand reunion

When we can be a family once again

And so today I cam to say

Until that day

I’m okay

Ryan heard your song before I did and he thought it was amazing. I already knew how amazing you are, so I am not surprised! But it was good to hear you on the piano again...it has been too long. You look so beautiful by the way.
