about

Written in loving memory of Don and Georgetta Grabb.

lyrics

A weight was lifted. A soul did fade. Another good man saw his last day. And, all grieve in their own way. So, I asked his son, “How’re you doing? How’re you holding up? What’s your condition?” He said, “I thank the day that lifted him away from the pains that stayed where his body still lay.” So, we all shake hands and pay respects, share our memories with our families and our friends, breathe life into them. And when time comes to take our seats, we all filter in and reverently cease to speak, when a man of words steps forward with these: “I thank the day that lifted him away from the pains that stayed.” As the crowd washes away, 8 men still remain, their hands clasp the casket like the mind clasps a refrain. A refrain that some find soothing. A refrain that brings some pain. But these lives and deaths are a refrain all the same. Like, “I thank the day that lifted him away from the pains that stayed. Yes, still, I thank the day that lifted him away from where his body still lay.”
