In Remembrance

I remember going fishing with you.

You caught what not many people do!

It was a snapping turtle,

Which caused me to chuckle.

 

I remember your mind slowly fading away,

And I remember praying it would stay.

I still loved you dearly,

Yet you could only love me blindly.

 

Despite your failing mind,

Your musical talent never declined.

You sang and played the piano for God.

Rarely were the songs ever flawed.

 

Several years ago, God took you home after a long, hard fight.

I struggled with being uptight.

I know I should not mourn, though,

For you are a citizen at the greatest place to go.

 

Despite my love for you,

Your death I do not wish to undo.

God placed you in heaven for a reason,

And I know one day we will meet again.
