I wonder if the stars are at fault for not shining bright
That the clouds took over and blanketed the night
The moon however, peeked as it cried
As a soul of a friend touched the sky for a flight.
Crickets sung a wonderful lullaby
As she closed her eyes to bid her last goodbye
The wind sent her flowers, so there she could lie
and resolve the sweet macabre by wearing the brightest smile.
The night was peaceful, the night was calm.
But sadness filled the hearts of her clan.
It was a painful thought to acknowledge her gone
Yet a rejoicing experience for the promise of her God.
She may have ended her journey early in this world
But has finally arrived in the arms of her Lord.
God knew the right timing as to when she’d be called
Called home to the place where she truly belonged.
These words, however I carefully weaved them, still cannot describe the mixed feelings of sorrow and peace I am feeling right now for the loss of a very good friend. But I would like to share it, in the hope that, somehow, it would bring encouragement and faith to those who could barely hold on to life., whatever your circumstances are. Know that there is Someone who cares for you, and He understands you no matter what you are going through. He even died for you to redeem you, and He rose again to give you victory.
