I’LL TAKE CARE OF IT
I hear your voice when you would say to me,
‘I’ll take care of it, whatever you need.’
You moved with such ease, and always tried
Oh what will I do now that you are gone?
Who will finish the work you left undone.
You said you would always took care of me,
you led me to believe,
I would always have you near, to wipe way
Now that you’re gone, I seem so all alone,
No one to say the words, “I’ll take care of
it, whatever you need.”
Well I see your hand in everything aspect of
How you painted the walls of my house and
manicured my lawn.
Oh yes, you carried the things I couldn’t
Always lending a helping hand from dust to
No matter how far and no matter how long,
you left so many reminders
That you are not far from home.
Your annoying ways, your charming songs,
Your fervent support, your care for our MOM.
Yes, you said you would take care of it,
whatever I need.
Now who will take care of it since you are
Who will comfort me during the storms?
Who will call my full name on the phone?
Who will shine their light in the dark to
keep me safe and warm?
Tell me who, if you can so I’ll know,
Who do you suggest, when will they show.
My sorrow is full; my pain is without end,
Who will you send, maybe a friend.
Who do I call on when times seem so scary?
It’s hard to trust people; they are all in a
Who will I race with when my birthday is
Only you were the one who could catch me and
Who will take care of me and love me so,
The love of a brother, how will it continue
You said you would take care of it, you
promised you would
Who will take care of it, if only they
I heard your voice, oh so sweet and low,
Don’t worry my Sister,
For today I am gone, you see me no more,
But I am closer now, than I’ve ever been
For the One who takes care of me is faithful
He has provided as He said he would,
Never to leave you, to leave you alone,
And He said, “I’ll take care of it for you”
So when you think of me, know there’s
nothing I wouldn’t do,
For when you asked before, the answer was
then and it still is true,
Don’t worry my Sister, “We’ll take care of
it for you”
