Mourning / Grief


In Passing
by James H. Lee Jr.

When loved ones pass beyond this sphere
Into eternity,
They take the fondest memories
Of friends and family.

They take their dreams and longings,
And aspirations, too,
Especially eternal goals
Which they may there pursue.

Though we may not behold them
While yet we here remain,
We know they've stepped into the light
Beyond earth's toil and pain.

Their sorrows turn to gladness,
Their tears to untold joy,
As they encounter heaven,
And love without alloy.

Could we but gaze a moment
Into their smiling face,
We'd know that they'd ascended
Into a heavenly place.
James H. Lee Jr.
