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.”


Sherri Baskie


(paraphrased from her eulogy for her Mom)
