Touch The Sky

he met her at the park oh so long ago 
she was sweet sixteen 
sitting on the swing 
she asked him if he thought she could touch the sky
he said he would love to help her try 
and as he pushed her higher 
she yelled I've never been this close before
he just laughed and told her 
you'll make it there someday

and she kept on swinging he kept trying to help
pushes her as high as she can go 
and he still tells her baby you'll make it there someday

a few years had passed church bells had rung
a baby girl was born into their loving home
they took her to that same old park 
and pushed her not so high
they told her baby someday you will touch the sky

the years they came and went 
they wondered where all the time had gone to
she got sick but he took her to the park one last time

she kept on swinging he kept trying to help
pushes her as high as she can go he tells her 
baby you'll make it there someday

she whispers she's not ready to go
she's seen the stars shine bright and 
heard the angels sing
she doesn't want to go to touch the sky alone
he tells her baby I'll be there soon 
go ahead I promise someday 
I too will touch the sky with you

the swing is empty now but when ever he walks by 
he pushes it so high
and whispers someday I'll touch the sky
