Yours from the beginning .......Prayer

Updated on June 19, 2015

Just who are we to grieve
or to let tears flow in terrible sorrow
who are we to hurt for today
and again tomorrow

He was yours from the very beginning
and on to eternity
how he loved the birds and flowers
his garden of serenity

the pain of loss is much as I stand at
your grave and weep
but no one owns another's time
nor any life can we keep

I am older now than the age that you died
and I'll remember our youth of years
and know no pain like the loss of a brother
or to cry for the lack of tears

I would wish you back for your laugh and
smile your whole face brimming
Yet I know he is yours and he was from
the very beginning

      That my loved ones are in a far better place does not for one second make me miss them less. Thanks for using your talent to remind me of such sweet sorrow.

      Have no doubt. If you write a poem for that design, I will write a sermon about it. You constantly inspire a deeper relationship with the Creator.

      Lovely and so heart-felt. Our time is not our own, so we need to use it wisely, guided by our Heavenly Father.
