Till we Meet Again…

How can I say I loved you now that you are long gone?

How can I say I miss you whilst I didn’t take time to see you when I should have?

How can I cope with your absence when I wasn’t accustomed to your presence?

How can I reminisce of memories we never made?

How can I write of a past we never shared?

How can I say goodbye when I barely said hello

Death is a thief of time

Time I should have spent with you

Time I should have taken to know you

All that is left now is thoughts of what could have been

How can I say goodbye when I barely said hello

Death is a teacher 

Taught me to love when I should not because I must

That life is too short to not love those around me

That life is too short to not live right

So how can I say goodbye when I barely said hello

Death is a song

I sang my mourning like clockwork

Cried out my hurt like a broken record

I tried to find a scapegoat to blame

And these songs reminded me that my bitterness

Relied heavily on the fact I was not there when it mattered

I was hiding in the shadows, loving you from afar

Tell me, how I can say goodbye when I barely said hello

Death is final

Our lives stretched far beyond us

And death, he said no, put an end to yours

I’m wrong, it was actually Mercy, the mercy of He that made you for us that said no.

No more would you suffer in this world, in your short ailment

And HE out of his mercy called you to perfect, final rest

Called you into his home

To live is Christ and to die is gain

It’s selfish to want you here on earth with us

Because God is greater than us and his will is more perfect than our needs and desires

So I choose not to say Goodbye, because I barely got the chance to say Hello.

Therefore I say Rest thee peacefully in Christ Dear

Till we meet again.
