Flying High

Teresa’s loss has been hard to face.
But I know she’s in a better place.
A place of happiness joy and peace.
Where sorrow, tears and pain all cease.

For in this kingdom sits the Lord Jesus.
Pierced and raised and so to free us
from pain and death we go through.
Just so He could be with you.

So look up and see the sky.
She is up there…flying high.
Wearing robes shining white
and basking in His glorious light.

Now set aside deep tears and grief.
Place faith in God and find relief
and thank the Lord above
for his everlasting love.

I was 3 years, and 8 months old when you were born
But did not know you till twenty
When we laid in the grass and promised
Each other our love would be plenty

I weigh our life and marriage today
And think of our 30, and 8 years together
Our love, our laughter, and caring for children
Midst sodden days or brightest fair weather

So on your first birthday at home with Jesus
I remember the laughter and love you convey
You filled me with selfless affection and friendship
I’ll miss you… ’til we’re united again someday

Happy Birthday My Love

Dialysis

You walk in and look around; you see no warmth, nor hope for tomorrow, there is no laughter in that room. All eyes are vacant; little hope shines through…

She has flare in her eyes
and smiles like an angel.
Muse her hows and whys
her love is so faithful.

She contrives my future
and makes arrangements.
She gives me away
to transcend Her ailments.

She has flare in her eyes
yet misfortune o’re her head.
Her love for me is not disguised.
“I’m only doing this for you.” She said.

“I’m only doing this for you,
I don’t want this pain.
I’m only doing this for you,
what else have I to gain?”
