Dear one, we do not weep for you.
You're safe in Jesus' arms.
You're walking, talking with your Lord,
free from this world's harm.
Someday we'll meet with you again—
when Christ comes back to earth
to claim the souls that, through His blood,
He's granted his New Birth.
' Til then we've said our last "goodbye."
We'll miss your smiling face.
Your presence added "spice" to live,
your death, a vacant place.
