Letting Go

The angels gathered near your side

So very close to you

For they knew the pain and suffering 

That you were going through 

I thought about so many things

As I held tightly to your hand 

Oh, how I wished that you were strong

And happy once again

But your eyes were looking homeward

To that place beyond the sky

Where Jesus held his outstretched arms 

it was time to say good-bye

I struggled with my selfish thoughts

For I wanted you to stay 

So we could walk and talk again

Like we did..just yesterday

But Jesus knew the answer 

and I knew you loved him so 

I gave to you life’s greatest gift

The gift of letting go

Leave a Remembrance
