Though the joys, the sorrows and the days made new
I look back and I can see how well your life was spent
But, now and again I rub my eyes and wonder where the time went?
I can see now how much love for me you truly had
Especially, when I felt lonely, down or sad
Your smile helped me to smile
Your walk is now my walk
Your talk is now my talk
Your extra mile helped me to take that extra mile
I had a dream with you walking in the sand
You were being led by the Saviors Hand
You turned, smiled and looked at me
I wanted to run to you, but in my heart I knew you were free
I watched as you were led into the light
Never again to have to fear the dread of night!
I thank my God every time I remember you
Through each joy, each sorrow and each day made new.
I wrote this poem for my friends at the time who were losing their loved ones, mostly grandparents. I wrote it to encourage them in their Christian walk knowing that their Christian relatives and friends were no longer in pain, but now rejoicing! I hope you enjoy this and find the peace of Christ in your own lives!
