Memories // flashing through my mind
and it still doesn't seem real
that you aren't here, my dear.
But God is here // in this moment
He's teaching me things
that I never would have understood before.
I see beauty // where I've never seen it
the wind blowing through the trees
breaking the silence of the afternoon
spreading peace and whispering God's love.
the tears // they still fall down my cheeks
but this hope grows inside my heart
because one day I'll join you // in that perfect place
and I can't imagine how beautiful it must be
when I look around at the beauty He's placed here
and when I think about your smile already there.
Oh God, I marvel at Your mercy
at how You could make something beautiful
out of something so dark.
At how You give us so much hope
in the midst of such overwhelming sadness.
I long for Your love // even as I feel its embrace
and I need You, now // not more than I ever have before
but perhaps I am just becoming more aware of it.
So let me fully rely on You, Lord,
and trust Your perfect vision to guide me
// in the paths that I should go.
