Our Loss… Heaven’s Gain!

I express myself better in my writings… and art…

Our family has been hit with a great tragedy

The loss of a Great-Niece to me…

A lovely… sweet… smart young lady…

Loved by so many!

Please comfort this sweet family with YOUR loving arms surrounding them and the Peace that only YOU can bring Dear Lord

AMEN

My heart is so heavy…

The tears are right there…

It seems blurry…

So hard to bear…

 

Their loss so great…

What will they do…

Is this fate?

They had no clue…

 

She smiled to the world…

But, hurt so inside…

Thoughts always whirled…

At night she cried…

 

All loved her…

She knew that…

But, thoughts would blur…

Feelings in conflict…

 

So pretty was she…

Blond hair flowing…

You felt her plea…

That she was aching…

 

Smart as a whip…

Friends surrounded…

But her grip…

Had depleted…

 

She tried to laugh…

Her family close…

On their behalf…

She fought her foes…

 

A young, sweet girl…

Loved so very much…

Her thoughts awhirl…

Longed for God‘s touch…

 

She wanted peace…

Could not find…

Thoughts would not cease…

As much she tried…

 

She left a message…

Of her deep concerns…

A beautiful image…

Her words… discerns…

 

Gone forever…

How could this be…

Always adored…

She’s  been set free!
