7th Birthday Without You In 2014


Not long ago God called you home,
My loss was heaven's gain.
Though gone from sight ,
the fingerprints you left me still remain.
The void you left no one can fill,
your loss too much to bear
but oh what comfort now
to find your prints are everywhere.
They show up unexpectedly
in moments and in places,
in sights and sounds and scents;
and even in the faces of those you touched
with inspiring words,
and all your loving ways.
These marks you left no flood can wash
nor time fade away.
Though I miss you every day
and I know I always will;
you left me with a legacy of love and justice
that grows stronger each day.
I'll cling to precious memories in this time that we're apart,
and take comfort in your prints forever etched upon my heart.
