One Sweet Day- Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men

Sorry, I’ve never told you, all I wanted to say
And now it’s too late to hold you
‘Cause you’ve flown away
So far away

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feelin’ and knowing you, hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Eventually I’ll see you in Heaven

Darling, I never showed you
Assumed you’d always be there
I, I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
And I miss the love we shared

I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Picture a little scene from Heaven

Although, the sun will never shine the same
I’ll always look to a brighter day
Yeah, Lord, I know, when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day

Sorry, I never told you
All I wanted to say

 

If you don’t have this in your funeral songs playlist, then you’re missing out because this song was written and performed by Mariah Carey and the Boyz II Men. A family member or a close friend who has a great voice can also sing this if you are running out of ideas for cremation service. This can be a dedication for the person who passed away since the song points out longingness and seeing the person again one sweet day.

This song by Mariah Carey and the Boyz II Men is a dedication to a friend, David Cole, who died on the 24th of January 1995 because of an illness. This is also for the people who lost their loved ones. This song has been on the “Billboards Top 10” for 16 weeks. Until this day, a lot of singers has made their cover and rendition to the song.

“One Sweet Day” conveys a message of showing importance, care, and happiness to those people you love because we will never know the day they’ll say goodbye. Regrets appear when we take a person for granted, and we didn’t show them how happy you were that they become part of your life. Your apologies would be a waste because you wasted and taken for granted the days you have left with them because of you thought they’d stay with you forever.

In the song, it also emphasizes that one sweet day, you’ll see each other again in heaven. And no matter how bright the sun and your day is, it will never be the same without the person you loved. Don’t make it come to a point where all you do is fight and argue. Instead of spitting fire to them that can boil their temper, say flowery and wonderful words to the person and eventually, they’ll appreciate your words and feel your love for them.
