I Don’t Want To Live Without You

Three years ago this past Friday my wife Aly was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

Aly and I were incredibly blessed to be able to celebrate her life together on Friday.

We had many conversations during her treatment that looking back now truly blow my mind.

When a spouse is sick there are conversations and thoughts that should never pass through the mind much less the lips.

Many of you have heard of ‘for King & Country’ and their music.

I came across this song and story this weekend and was needless to say, moved.

Here are the lyrics to the song.

What do you do when you don’t get better
Strong arms get to, get to weak to hold her
Oh God give me and just enough strength to make it through
Sleepless this madness is walking me out to the ledge
And stands there beside me shriving out on the edge
Oh God all I, all I ask is a little relief
Just a moment of peace

I don’t want to live without you
I’m not ready to live without you
So let’s dance a little
Laugh a little
Hope a little more
Cause I don’t want to live without you, without you

This thorn in my side
Though it cuts and stings me
As opens these eyes
I’ve never seen so clearly
And oh God I thank you
Cause you bring me to my knees
Back on my knees

I don’t want to live without you
I’m not ready to live without you
So let’s dance a little
Laugh a little
And hope a little more
Yes let us dance a little
Laugh a little
And hope a little more
Cause I don’t want to live without you, without you

I heard a voice from the other side
Singing “hold fast, love last”
As winter turns into summertime
Singing “hold fast, love last”
Heard another voice from the other side
Singing “hold fast, love last”
As winter turns into summertime
Singing “hold fast”

So let’s dance a little
Laugh a little
And hope a little more
Yes let’s dance a little
Laugh a little
And hope a little more
Cause I don’t want to live without you
No, I don’t want to live without you
Without you
