Profound Wedding Song Lyrics

I’m just about to gather up all of my gear and head out to shoot a wedding, but I thought I’d add a short post before I go.

Yesterday was the first anniversary of our daughter’s death – a tough day for both Greg and I, but we powered through. Strangely enough, and perhaps in preparation of shooting today, my own wedding was playing in my head all day yesterday. I kept getting stuck, like a scratched CD, on our first dance. Over and over again, the song we danced to played in my head and, after about the 20th time, it donned on me. LISTEN.

Our song was Hold Onto Me by John Michael Montgomery and, when I finally grabbed my ipod and listened to it, I realized I was hearing it in my head for a reason…

Hold onto me when your world’s turning cold,
When you feel like your life’s spinning out of control.
When you keep hoping, praying, trying so hard to believe.
Hold onto me when there’s no middle ground
and every emotion is coming unwound.
When you don’t know if you can hold on to your dreams.
Baby, you can hold on to me.

Exactly one year ago, this is exactly what I was doing. My world turned cold, it spun out of control, we were both hoping and praying and feeling our dreams slip away and we got through every agonizing second of it by holding on to each other.

What a profound song to choose to represent our life together.

Today, I hope the song that Kara and Kyle choose has the same profound effect on their lives.

As for me, I’m going to keep holding fast to Greg as we keep trucking through life without Cora.

Have a good weekend my friends.

I wish you all enough…

  1. Jo-Jo that is beautiful. Sometimes our healing power is in a song, that all we have to do is open our mind, heart and spirit and our loved ones will lead the way. The song my sister plays for her daughter is, Arms wide open by Cree. I still struggle to listen to that song without crying. You two hang in there; your pain will become acceptance.
