One year ago today
You were suddenly taken away
By the hands of God
Your soul was eternally saved
I tearfully watched your body shut down
As your soul peacefully rose up
You watched over me as I wept
Holding me closely as I was forced to accept
The blessing that seemed tragedy
Driving helpless cries of agony
Until the tears had dried
The nurse politely wrote the time you died
I restricted belief of all that I saw
But the confirmation was the writing on the wall
I denied acceptance to my heart and mind
All sympathy and gestures I silently declined
Three hundred and sixty five days later, my heart is still not whole
However I have learned your timely death was God’s ultimate goal
He took you home to peace and freedom
To His beloved and joyous kingdom
I will never miss you any less
But most importantly your beautiful soul is at rest
