The Vessel

The Vessel

When someone creates an impact
So immensely it leaves an eternal scar
And the world stops for a moment
For it can not breathe
Cause'  an entity so strong has moved on

To another place, for in this world she never truly belonged
Just a brief moment in time was all that she needed
To create a sound so loud that changed the lives of all
Her life walk embraced and enveloped the faith of God
Imparting into us a hunger of revelation
With every impression and every song

Her voice was without fear and her love without restrain
Seeking to always soothe those in pain
 We obtain what she has so genuinely given
From her unseemingly sacrifice of servanthood
Which allowed us to become so much more
Than we ever imagined that we could
This world has truly lost a beautiful vessel
That with every drink filled the souls of all
