Time Allots Not When

We do not want to say goodbye
Don’t want to let them go
We cannot understand this pain
Adhered to tears a flow
We want only to see their smiles
Their burst of sweet sunshine
Their laughter ringing in the air
Not plans they left behind
The time is sad and numbness sets
Our hearts cry bottled tears
Our hearts are filled with disbelief
At losing precious dears
We know that time allots not when
The day will come to claim
And so we’re left to just succumb
To pain that burns 
like flame

Life is not fair
So much is filled with rain
And through the winds of time
We’ll often speak their name
It will be in the little things
Perhaps a favorite song
That will remind us once again
Of where they still belong
Until we meet with them again
In God’s big gorgeous sky
Let’s lean on their sweet memory
And keep their love alive!

Dedicated to my beautiful cousins,
Prissy and 
who left us to go to their forever home.

I Love You!
