God Misses Them Too

God misses loved ones we have lost, for them, still shed a tear Ever stop, consider their voices, God no longer … does hear? God misses them too, all their prayers, so loved hearing them pray Sometimes on their knees in the morning, or short ones … during the day Heard when needed their fears quieted, times they didn't feel strong Nights in a hospital bed, prayed quietly … all night long Heard sincere prayers of thankfulness, of gratitude and joy Woke to see another day, told Him …. they did enjoy Days intrigued by flower designs, saw how an eagle flies Magnificent colors God painted, The morn ... and evening skies God's glory and magnificence proclaimed on starry nights When mesmerized by creation God's power ... and His might Prayers offered during times of victory, few times suffered defeat Days taking sunny beach strolls, or the nights … when couldn’t sleep Night eyes swollen from flowing tears, after silly mistake Repentant pleas offered to God, before slept … when awake Millions of times during a lifetime, with God, they’ve been in touch Let's hope and pray when we too die, He’ll miss us … just as much *** In memory of childhood friend ...
