A Poem for Those Departed by BCJ Grace

 A Poem for Those Departed by Benjamin (Franklin Walker) Charles Jude Grace

"Years have passed since I've seen your eyes
Go narrow with suspicion or widen in surprise
But not a day goes by
When I don't think of how hard you tried
To make me feel loved and accepted
Peaceful and not rejected
This goes for many we've lost you see
And I carry all their spirits within me
As well all do I'm quite sure
We have had the strength of heart to endure
Great tragedy and strife
But in the end we've come out smiling
Calling out to life
Remembering how it goes on
Whispering names in a song
So think now of how much we've stood
Together as a family, a unit of good
You are my all and my light and my life
So peace be with you
And have a good night"
