To My dear sweet friend:
Looking back at what once was,
Dreaming of what should have been.
Taken away, the loss surreal.
Not to be traded the sweetness of His love revealed.
But still the pain persists
The looking behind to see what’s gone
But today you say forward is the way to heal.
Releasing, letting go,
The treasures of the past still yet to be enjoyed.
The gift of this love let Him show.
To fill you with the memories of joy
The laughter, the tender moments to explore.
Count it all as loss, the gain none to compare.
His unfailing love for you he wants to share,
To fill you where you feel bereft,
To overflow you with the knowledge that he has never left.
“Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ”. Philippians 3:8
