If you were here beside me – I’d give you hugs and a kiss,
But since you’re with Jesus – I’ll tenderly “Reminisce”
Some folks may need to write – others need a final “good by”
Many spend a long time grieving – and can’t do much but cry.
But you’ve made the grade, sweetie – I’ll not think, “Poor me”
For death is the beginning of Life – as God meant it to be.
I prefer to spend my time – counting blessings galore;
I’ve gotten more than my share – and a whole lot more!
I’m so grateful you were sent – from the Great Master above.
My heart is all “aglow” – with an eternal LOVE.
Human nature could cause me – to grieve away “hours”
I could run to the cemetery – with oodles of flowers.
But your earthly life is over – “I” must go on.
Though your body is buried – your “love” isn’t gone.
Yes, I feel your presence – in a spiritual way;
So, you’ll always be with me – forever and a day.
Yes, my little darling – you’ve passed the final quest:
I’m happy you’re with JESUS – you, NOW have the “Best”
So how could I grieve – though you’re no longer near;
Yes, there’s an emptiness – but my heart swells with a cheer!
Sure I’m experiencing – oh, such “sweet” SORROW,
But someday I’ll be with you – in that Eternal Tomorrow.
Till then – I’ll not be seeing your sweet face,
But I’ll carry on – abiding, in GOD’S sufficient GRACE!
Love You Always!
