It is difficult to watch the person you love the most fight for their life. You do not know what to do. You do not know if there is anything that can be done. However, the only thing we are sure of is that we can pray to God. However, sometimes even if we pray for the person we love to get well and be fine, certain things do not just happen. It is not because God does not listen to our prayer but God is doing what is best for us and for the person we love.

About the Song

“Streets of Heaven” is a sad song that tells a story of a mother praying to God to not take away her seven-year-old child. The mother, at first, seems to have a feeling of anger as she questions God why He has to take away her daughter at a very young age. However, towards the end of the song, the mother reached a realization and accepted the fact that her daughter will leave her soon. She accepted that maybe it is best for her daughter too. Therefore, she asked God to watch over her and make sure she is safe when she crosses the streets of heaven.
