Grief

This is a beautiful poem written by one of my sister Lisa's dear friend Stacy. Lisa sent it to me because she knew I would love it and appreciate it. I did! I do. She wrote it about someone who has experienced more grief than anyone who should. I know she didn't write it about me, but I felt like it was.....

Lord, words I do not have
Prayers I know not how to pray
Answers to hard questions I don't know what to say
Heaven is a long time to wait
To see the one's we love at Heaven's gate.
In the mean time, until that glorious day comes
Renew. Revive. Reveal. Relieve.
Give this woman strength and courage to face another day
To ask for your guidance along the way.
Show her what healing looks like
She longs to encourage others but isn't ready for the mike
Send her chosen people who will walk with her
To share this next season of life.
Free her from sorrow, deliver her from strife.
You are her God, she is your girl
I know your hand is extended
May she take it and twirl.
Dance over her. Sing her a new song.
Time on earth isn't forever
When compared to eternity, reunion won't be long....

Your family has a special place in our heart. My breath was taken away all over again at Mary's amazing smile. I have been blessed by remembering her through out your blog.
