Today I Miss You

It is been eleven years, but today I miss you.

I am feeling sentimental and tearing up too36872_117593471619012_6313741_n

Although I have come to realize the time was right

When God took you home leading you into the light.

At first I was angry and couldn’t understand

“Have faith and he will be healed” were the words of the preacher man

I thought I let you down when my prayers didn’t come true

But God’s will was done that day in you

You stood forgiven for all that you did

The wrongs you did when I was just a kid

You could stand before God knowing all was forgiven

Not worrying if you would once again turn to sin

But today as I go visit that plot of land

I can rest assured you are in God’s hand

So even though there are tears in my eyes

As I quietly try to hide my cries

I know that one day I will see you again

When I meet my Savior and hear the angel band.

I just didn’t know, didn’t have a clue

That today I would still be missing you.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
