God Was Your Closest Friend
(Sympathy Funeral Poems)

I knew you were in pain
although there were no cries ..
I saw that your were suffering
from the look in your eyes.

I wanted to comfort you
to be with you that day ..
You looked so helpless and frail
while, in that bed you lay.

I watched as you shivered
from a new pain ..
And wondered how I might
have handled the same.

I wanted to scream
to shout and to yell ..
You said you were fine although
your skin was so pale.

I knew in my heart
your time was near end ..
And wished I could take you
your body to mend.

I knew that soon God
would be your closest friend ..
You told me many times
that’s how it would end.

I stood there watching
as each breath came slow ..
And fought to find courage
my emotions were low.

I promised you when the time came
that I’d not cry ..
You never saw my eyes wet
always they were dry.

I held your hand
as I silently said goodbye ..
And knew in my heart
that soon you would die.

I stroked your forehead
and said how I loved you ..
You nodded and smiled
and I knew that you knew.

I no longer care
my tears I can’t hide ..
And as I stood there waiting
for death by your side.

I knew then that God
was your closest friend ..
You had told me many times
that’s how it would end.
