I really didn’t want to say goodbye,
This time it wasn’t, “see you later”.
Time can be our enemy and our friend,
Today is a reminder of the harsh reality,
Of what is most hated about life.
Today I am thankful,
For what a precious gift I received,
In having a Dad,
Who gave unconditional love.
I would prefer that you were still here now,
But, I trust now in God’s care,
That you are now breathing,
Fresh life with eternity’s breath.
