First time I heard this single I was passing by Bayou’s vet, a place far out, rarely on my way to anywhere. It was the first time driving by his vet since he passed. It was a sign, I believe in signs, sue me. Stapleton performed Broken Halos last night at the CMAs. I cry hearing it, pretty much every time. Enough said. (The CMAs tend to block all performances on You Tube so here it is from Today).
The house has not been the same since you left. The skies have been cloudy since your peaceful end, they must know the gray in my heart. A part of me thinks that you are hiding in a different room and I will see you in a second. Another part of me thinks that you, like a grown child, have left for college and I will see you as soon as you run out of clean clothes. The saddest part of me knows I will never see you again, this is the part that makes me cry.
I know you are in a better place, Yet my heart is in the worst place
I loved you with all I had, And you loved me without question, You will remain loved
Your spirit was sweet, It will remain no doubt
You will never be replaced, That is impossible
You will never be forgotten, Remaining a part of this family in spirit
Your love will remind me to open my home, Welcome a new member in
Forever you will be missed
Forever my girl
Forever Bayou’s sister
Forever at peace
