SLEEP ON…

Sleep On

So many times you’re thought about

So many times we mourn

Our hearts are still yet bleeding

Because they certainly have been torn

The time we had to see your face

Has come and gone exceptionally fast

And yet this love you’ve let us with

For a lifetime… It will last

This heart of gold is now laid to rest

Our memories we hold remarkably near

And though we reverently yield to God’s plan

We still…wish that you were here

Goodbyes are often difficult to declare

Their pain runs ever so deep

And so we’ll never bid you adieu

We’ll just see you…as sound asleep

Today is another day that I found out that someone that I know has died.  That now makes about six people in the last six or seven months.  Although death is inevitable, it is certainly surprising at times and overwhelming as well.  Right now I’m burning a candle for all of those families who are grieving their loved-ones.  I’m  also wishing eternal peace for the deceased.  Above is a poem that I wrote some time ago and I hope it speaks to the heart of those who are trying to cope with their loss.
