Audrey Assad Breaks Your Heart February 13, 2019

She writes:

I wrote this song weeping in prayer for all the mamas who have had their children separated from them at the borders of our country. A mother’s love is fierce, enduring, and never gives up.

I’ve loved you for so long now
You’re flesh of my flesh
and bone of my bone
You’re a rib from my chest.

I hardly know where I end
and where you begin
Your heartbeat from my heartbeat
Your skin on my skin.

Where did you go love?
Why couldn’t you stay?
My arms feel so empty
at the end of the day
I couldn’t follow you
When you went away
Slowly but surely
I’m walking your way

When you were torn away
I was broken in two
My body’s an endless aching
vessel for you

with every passing night
every slow rising moon
I’m crying a river
that will lead me to you.

I’d climb any mountain
I’d swim any stream
If I knew I could see you
I would do anything.
I would cross oceans
I would sail over the sea
to see you again
to have you with me

Where did you go love?
Why couldn’t you stay?
My arms feel so empty
at the end of the day
I couldn’t follow you
When you went away
Slowly but surely
I’m walking your way
