A Beautiful Grief
(after Sherri Baskie)
No more "Just wait till I tell you ..."
the ever guiding hand is no more
Christmas, Easter and birthdays
will never be the same
Life has confronted Death
Eyes are overwhelmed by grief
No more "If only ..." or "I can't ..."
the ever present dark is no more
Each day owns its fullest joy
absent any tear or pain
Death is overcome by Life
Eyes close, and behold Glory!
“Tonight I said goodbye to my mom.
Tonight I held her hand one last time and kissed her goodbye.
Tonight a piece of my heart broke and my tears flowed.
Tonight she is with dad, she has wanted to see him for so long.
Tonight she opened her eyes and looked into the face of her Saviour.
Tonight I am sad for our family.
Tonight my mom is having the time of her life.”
(paraphrased from her eulogy for her Mom)
