Close to You

by Alicia Hudson-Idleburg, Rex Horan, and Sara Lee


I want to be close to you,
My king, my child, my joy,
I want to be close to you,
Dariel, I miss you, my boy.
Oh, how beautiful,
Like the feet of a child,
You never know where they go,
Standing, walking, running for miles.

 

A believer in fresh, creased jeans,
Precious smile and golden skin.
On the ‘phone to check on me,
Blessed to have a son like you.

 

I want to be close to you,
My king, my child, my joy,
I want to be close to you,
Dariel, I miss you, my boy.
Oh, how beautiful,
Like the feet of a child,
You never know where they go,
Standing, walking, running for miles.

 

I miss your gentle heart, your generosity,
I thought you might come back to me,
‘Til I heard a voice, it said to me,
He was mine before he was yours.

 

I want to be close to you,
My king, my child, my joy,
I want to be close to you,
Dariel, I miss you, my boy.
Oh, how beautiful,
Like the feet of a child,
You never know where they go,
Dariel, my boy.

Dariel, I miss you, my boy.
