Like all the dreams you’ve ever dreamed

And all the plans you ever planned

Like the currents in the river

And all the ridges in the sand

One whisk of mighty ocean wave

That does quite often go astray

Maybe a mighty blast of wind

Stalls, waiting to come out and play

Like all the fishes in the sea

And all the birds that fly up high

The simple clasping of a hand

Accepts it’s time to say goodbye !

Oh my dearest child, what shall  I do

When your time on earth with us is through

As your voice is silenced fore’er more

You will knock no more upon my door.

We shan’t have those chats of heart to heart

Like we did before we had to part

I’ll miss you for my remaining days

Remembering  your familiar ways.

This will not change and can never be

Since God has chosen to set you free !

One page of life too soon will close

Beyond our fingers and our toes

‘Twill pass again this way no more

Without a tally or a score.

We must accept the burning fact

That there will be no turning back

Despite the depth or max of pain

We shall not pass this way again.

The time has come  to file away

Those memories of yesterday

Let’s place them in our private space

That God and time will ne’er erase !

It seems that life is whizzing by

With days so fast they seem to fly

While times their passage makes us cry

That’s when we must all bid goodbye !

What does one seek after the midnight hour

Neath the veil of darkness and loss of power

When the stilled air deserts its resting place

And we bid farewell to eternal grace

May the love of God now protect us all

From the final cut of the curtain call !

Oh Lord have I not understood

The wealth of kindness and of good

That we embrace from day to day

And is the path we pledge to stay ?

The time draws near, the moment bright

As terror passes through the night

I sense the angel wings on high

Tis soon the hour of sweet goodbye !

For all of the joy that the holidays bring

There is this bit reminding us of one thing

That through all the pleasures each season may bear

Sometimes there’s a reason that we daren’t share.

The heart’s just a muscle that rises and falls

Yet treasures the moment and often recalls

Those times that were real, much before used to be

When some had to leave for a new destiny

Wherever they’ve gone, we have bid them adieu

As we must carry on, the remaining few !
