Another Hand

God touched another hand
as last breath slipped away.
Cradled a loved one’s head
as hearts began to pray. 

God whispered I love you
while angels near him stood.
Raised his soul to heaven 
cause He promised He would.

God granted his soul peace
from life of constant pain.
Freed body from struggles
and further family strain.

God allowed him to love
to know all life’s pleasure.
But God loves him more than
one can ever measure.

    Caryl, I have always found comfort in the belief that earthly death is but a transition to eternal life. (Dad said the same thin in his living will and it made it easier for us to unplug the respirator.) You present your thoughts so eloquently here, dear. This goes to my faves. Love, Carolyn
