We may sometimes feel as if our lives are through,
That there is nothing more we can do.
But looking back, we can see our part,
Giving to the one who has carried our heart.
Together we created a loving home,
And raised two children of our own.
I continue to see you in their eyes,
Even after we have said our goodbyes.
Today the sun may not shine,
But I know this intervention was divine.
God has called you home; your work here is done.
Now your place is with the Father and His Son.
Tomorrow will be a better day.
Healing takes time, people say.
In many ways we were blessed,
And now I lay you down to rest.
