~ It Wasn't Them ~
It wasn't them, they took away
In roses pink and white,
Without their smile and twinkly eye
Where it might seem as night.
It wasn't them, their heart's alive
It never skipped a beat,
It wasn't them, for all they are
Is all the more complete.
It wasn't them, that said goodbye
Farewell is not your word,
But, see you soon, it won't be long
Until in life we merge.
It wasn't them, they cannot die
For they, are yet alive,
You heard them whisper, 'wait-
I'll see you, do not cry'.
It wasn't them, but you that cried
For dreams you can't yet see,
While they are more than overjoyed
In life eternally.
It wasn't them, but, hope within
That fell within the grass,
To struggle for the comfort
That they are safe at last.
It wasn't them, but you that held
Onto your every breath,
For, when you watched them fly away
You knew it wasn't death.
It wasn't them, all swept away
For they, are where it's real,
It isn't them bereft, nor grieved
But you, who waits to heal.
It wasn't them that lay there still
But you, that tried to move,
For they're already flying free
In all that's beautiful.
Our God will hold you close and warm
It always was, and ever is
His LOVE in them and you...
Soft whispers from

He will wipe every tear from their eyes.
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain,
for the old order of things has passed away.
~ Revelation 21:4 ~
