(Funeral Memorial Poems)
The Angels gathered near your bed
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 ..
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 goodbye.
I struggled with my selfish thoughts
for I wanted you to stay ..
.. But Jesus knew the answer
and I knew He loved you so.
So I gave you life’s greatest gift.
the gift of letting go.
