The clock is gone

the minutes

the hours

The ticking done.


i lay down my head.

You may think i've lost

but i know i've won.


Dont cry for me my dear

Child, dry your tears.

Standing at the pearly gates

I wait for you here.


Don't grieve little one

all my pain is gone.

I sit at the throne of the Father

and rest at the feet of His Son.

The author's comments:

i was inspired to write this at the my great aunts funeral. i was too shy to share it with the rest of my family, but i hope everyone enjoys it and draws strength from it if you are grieving a loss. even if you don't believe in God, it's good to feel that your loved ones are in a better place.
