How kind of God to give us time

before our final parting in this life

to gently heal our pain scarce begun

filling with His grace this tragic gap

within our lives that by His mercy

go on despite the heaviness of our hearts

We live in hope of an eternal joy

that bids this short sadness know

its pains are far below the joy to come

We live in hope of heavns reunion

where earths tear will forever cease

its pain is not permitted and our love

will find at last its fulfillment in its King



In memory of Rick Campbell
