'Comforter'

We get these hard hitting reminders Of whom you are In times of sadness In times of powerlessness In times when we are left with so many questions A memory A few words Lyrics of a song You coerce us into knowing That in all these things In life and death You are there At times silent At times encouraging But always there The comforter We never know we really need you Until it is the only thing we feel close to

I feel the comforter more in our times of greatest need. Very well penned. A warm and comforting feel in an expression of loss.

Sending my deepest sympathies and prayers, dear Missy. I'm so sorry to hear about the sudden loss of your friend. But you've written such a touching tribute for him/her. What you say here is so true, and isn't it ironic, that from those we have lost, it is still them who gives us strength? Some are so strong that way. Beautiful poem and so blessed you all were to have had such a person to grace your lives. Extra mwahugs.

My deepest condolences. The last 2 lines, sadly, say it all. Many forget this fact and take it for granted. A sadly beautiful writing.

This poem is truly inspirational, and yes the Comforter is always there for us, awaiting us to come to Him! I really loved reading this awesome poem this morning! What a tremendous piece, Great Work!!
