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

It’s true what they say that it is important that you show your loved ones how much you care about them and how happy you are that they have become part of your life before it is too late.  Some have made the mistake of taking their friends and family for granted and never letting them know how they feel about them, assuming that they will always be present in their life.

This is the message the song “One sweet day” wants to convey.  The song was written and performed by Mariah Carey and the members of Boyz II Men.  It was dedicated to Carey’s friend and past collaborator, David Cole, who died on January 24, 1995 after a long illness, as well as to fans who have lost a loved one.

“One Sweet Day” expresses one’s grief not only over the loss of a loved one but also the regret over taking the person for granted.

But in “one sweet day”, they will be reunited in a place where there is only happiness and peace:  Heaven.

With its bittersweet lyrics, “One Sweet Day” has become one of the most popular choices for funeral songs.  It’s almost impossible not to let out a tear or two when this song is played during a funeral service for a loved one.
