inspired to write this poem and was honored when it was read at her service and printed in the program.


It is said that when one passes over

Surpassing limits of this realm, this place.

Those who cherished, loved and knew her.

Hold, inside their hearts, an empty space.


And though we know that we will see her

On the other side and by His grace.

We will see her, hear her voice and know her

Around the thrown when we will see our savior’s face.


When she was here with us we called her.

Wife, mother, sister, auntie, friend.

We will embrace her in the future,

In that happy time that has no end.


And at that time the Lord will fill in

The spaces where we hide our frozen tears.

We’ll live in peace and joy and gladness.

In that land of no more doubt and no more fears.

So good at 4 am when I just couldn't sleep. I like to compare the land of no more doubts or fears to the Peach Blossom Spring from early Chinese mythology. I don't know just what it is about a poem that speaks so deeply but this morning your sharing brightened my day.


What a lovely gift!


It's beautiful, Michelle!
