My Loved One Gone

The time has come.
Your earthly life has been taken from
me and those who
dearly love you
with feelings so deep and true.

The memory of being your choice,
the wonderful sound of your voice,
looking into your caring eyes,
walking with you under blue or cloudy skies,
your soft, familiar touch,
and the sharing of our children you loved so much,
comforts me as I go on
knowing you have gone
to a much better placeā€¦
where you are basking in God's eternal grace.
