One Day Closer to You
(In Loving Memory Poems)
I sometimes ask the Lord
why He took you before me ..
And though He’s never answered
I guess it was meant to be.
I tell myself you’re watching
that you’re never far away ..
I sometimes feel the slightest touch
when I bow my head to pray.
I know heaven must have a window
with no curtain to hide the view ..
I know you must stand there often
and watch me missing you.
I know you’re helping me go on
you’re guiding me through the pain ..
I somehow sense you’re telling me
there’s more sunshine now then rain.
Each new day now dawns with meaning
something inside of me rings so true ..
Today will slip into yesterday
and I’ll be one day closer to you!
