Song: “To Where You Are” sung by Josh Groban

There are many days when words fail me… songs like this help me along.


“To Where You Are”

Songwriter(s): Richard Marx, Linda  Thompson

Who can say for certain
Maybe you’re still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You’re still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you’re there
A breath away’s not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn’t faith believing
All power can’t be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
‘Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you’re there
A breath away’s not far
To where you are

I know you’re there
A breath away’s not far to where you are

I lost my brother Brian, my only sibling, to suicide on October 13, 2010. I write about dealing with the loss as well as my own life-long struggle with depression and suicidal ideation.

  1. thank you for sharing, rebecca. i’m now following your blog, too. it is always so helpful to connect with others who understand a great loss like ours– to know we aren’t alone! thinking of you!! -laura

  2. I just discovered your blog today through your comment on Rebecca’s blog. I’ve added it to my site, which I’ve been curating in memory of my 23 year old son who died almost 11 months ago.
    The site consists of blogs, articles, videos, and other resources for bereaved parents and siblings.
    I also plan to share your blog with my daughter.

  3. thank you for the link to your site– i’m now following it. i’m so very sorry for your loss. please send my thoughts to your daughter as well… was graham her only sibling as well?

    1. Yes, and Michaela is still in shock and struggling with the loss of her only sibling. We are all devastated and find it nearly impossible to grasp the permanence of this catastrophe in our lives. We miss Graham with every beat of our hearts. I know you understand, unfortunately.

  4. i do understand. if Michaela ever needs someone to talk to… you can share my e-mail with her too: my brother and i were almost exactly 1 year apart in age so we were very close… now there’s this huge hole in my life. i’m here if she ever feels like chatting; i’mobviously not an expert or anything an am only a year further down this awful journey but i do understand what she is experiencing.

  5. My darling husband George went home October 21st 2011 and this song means so much. I know he still lives in heaven and am so comforted to know that but this song both heals and breaks my heart

  6. I know exactly what you mean, Margaret! The song has a way of bringing me comfort at times but other times is so painful. But I love it! I’m very sorry for the loss of your husband.

  7. This song came out about the same time as I buried my wife. I used to cry when I’d visit her at the cemetery. That was in March of 2002. Now I know all the words…I sing it to her when I visit her now. I still cry, but the pain isn’t quite as intense as it used to be. Maybe because of his other song You Lift Me Up…

    1. Ken, that is also a song I listen to a lot! I’m deeply sorry for the loss of your wife. Thanks for stopping by and peace be with you and your family during the holidays.
