Knocking On Heaven’s Door

I find myself knocking on heaven’s door
Begging to see my brother just once more

One more time to tell him that I love him
One more time to wrap my arms around him
One more time to hear his voice dance on air
One more time at him to just sit and share

On my knees I’m knocking on heaven’s door
Please hear me for I’m stricken to my core

I don’t ask much just to see his smiling face
I don’t ask much just for one warm embrace
I don’t ask much just to see one more smile
I don’t ask much just to sit with him awhile

I’m crying here knocking on heaven’s door
Knowing on this side I’ll not see him anymore
