This Woman’s Work

I saw this on one of my new friends blog.  We have never met, but I consider her my friend because she is going through the same thing with her mom that I am with my dad.  She had this in one of her posts last week.  Me being a bit behind on my blog reading didn’t see it until today.  Cry scale already about a 6 today, this pushed it even higher.

I love this song.  I like the Kate Bush version of the actual song better, but this video is beautifully done.  The words have a new meaning to me now.  Just beautiful and heartbreaking.

This Woman’s Work

Pray God you can cope.
I stand outside this woman’s work,
This woman’s world.
Ooh, it’s hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can’t stop thinking

Of all the things I should’ve said,
That I never said.
All the things we should’ve done,
That we never did.
All the things I should’ve given,
But I didn’t.

Oh, darling, make it go,
Make it go away.

Give me these moments back.
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can’t stop thinking

Of all the things we should’ve said,
That were never said.
All the things we should’ve done,
That we never did.
All the things that you needed from me.
All the things that you wanted for me.
All the things that I should’ve given,
But I didn’t.

Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.

  1. I consider you a friend as well. It’s good to have someone who understands exactly what you experience, especially when it’s something difficult like cancer.
    I didn’t know there is a Kate Bush version of this song, will have to check it out tomorrow 🙂
