We're never that far apart

I still remember the day when God called out for you
         It never occurred to me that you’d be the one I’d lose
I know that you are safe now
         And one day he’ll call for me too
But I didn’t want you to see the angels in the room
         I will love you forever despite all of the pain 
Nothing in the world could ever break that chain
         And I know that death is the door that leads to something much more
Words can’t describe how far my heart tore
         And while nothing could fill the hole in my heart
I know that you and I are never that far apart
         I still hear your voice, I can still see your smile 
And then a memory comes and your here for a while
         I know it’s selfish to want you back home
Because you're in a better place now where your free to roam
         But I still long for all of the years
When everything in life was crystal clear
         But God still called your soul to fly before I got to say goodbye

Sad lines but there is hope in there if one has made reservations by believing in Jesus which it seems your loved one and yourself have done.. Sara

Thank you! This poem was difficult to write and was inspired by the death of my Great-Grandfather and was a gift to my grandmother to honor his death. I have a strong faith and I don't know what I would have done if I didn't have God by my side during this time.
