On the Death of My Dear Friend

Let sorrow come. It is okay
For us to weep and grieve today.
The hurt and pain reflect the depth
Of family ties and friendships kept.
It is all right to shed our tears
In recollection of the years
We spent as friends and loved ones dear --
We're sad for she's no longer here --
And that's okay.
                             But be it known:
We're confident of her new Home.
It's our Home too! and just a breath
Deprives us of that friendship yet.
So sorrow, come:  it is all right.
We feel the warmth of Heavenly Light
And Love, for Death has lost its sting
And no more has the victory.

Let sorrow come.
It is okay.
