Remembrance (From Sue)


REMEMBRANCE



I paused at the window this morning

On this the twenty second day of December

And took pause as the dawn

Lifted the sun silently over the horizon


I greeted the morning with coffee in hand

Said a prayer & remembered

On this day two years had past

Since I had seen my friend Paul, the last


He's somewhere over the rainbow

He's where dreams come true

He's with all who have come before

Waiting for those yet to travel afar


He greets the mornings with sunrises

He can see more than he could ever imagine

He's fascinated by all he walks by

He finds eternity amazing


He loved whom he loved with a heart of gold

He gave of his heart to the young and the old

Now at this Christmas, his favorite time of year

He has his father with him to toast good cheer


I paused at the window this morning

On this twenty second day of December

And took pause as the dawn

Lifted silently over the horizon


A toast to the life of one well lived

With humor, and grace and love

He will today and forever more be remembered

On this the twenty second day of December


Sue
