Beyond The Grave

How do we convey
Just how we feel
When we lose someone we love?
How do we explain
The deep, lonely pain,
The emptiness left in us?

No words can express
The hurt and anguish
Nor touch on how we feel
God shares our tears
And gives us His love
And He, in time, will heal

The hopes and the dreams
We had just remains
Like an unfinished book of their life
As an incomplete chapter,
Remains unfinished
With nothing more to write

But we can know God's comfort
And know there is hope
With a new chapter to begin
We can hold on to God,
For He loves us so much
And fills the void within

As we close one chapter,
Another can begin,
Though the one we love has gone
Through Christ's strength in us
And hope in our hearts,
We find courage to carry on.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things to come,
>Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39

Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "Write: 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them."

Revelation 14: 13
