Anyone in the position of loosing a loved mother or grandmother will wear these lyrics for days like a heavy coat. The shared human condition of grief is often just the bittersweet warmth that we need; even if, at this moment, it overwhelms us. Every time tears come to our eyes we move a little closer toward the light.

"A life with love is a life that's been lived."- Ed Sheeran

I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill

I threw the day old tea from the cup

Packed up the photo album Matthew had made

Memories of a life that’s been loved

Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals

Poured the old ginger beer down the sink

Dad always told me, “Don’t you cry when you’re down”

But mum, there’s a tear every time that I blink

 

Oh, I’m in pieces, it’s tearing me up, but I know

A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved

 

So I’ll sing Hallelujah

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

When I fell down you’d be there holding me up

Spread your wings as you go

When God takes you back

He’ll say, “Hallelujah, you’re home”

 

I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up

Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case

John says he’d drive then put his hand on my cheek

And wiped a tear from the side of my face

 

I hope that I see the world as you did ‘cause I know

A life with love is a life that’s been lived

 

So I’ll sing Hallelujah

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

When I fell down you’d be there holding me up

Spread your wings as you go

When God takes you back

He’ll say, “Hallelujah, you’re home”

 

Hallelujah

You were an angel in the shape of my mum

You got to see the person I have become

Spread your wings and I know

That when God took you back

He said, “Hallelujah, you’re home”
