My time once there

Dear daughter mine these words but few
Are typed this day as Gods hands drew
My life and family I would bare
For such a time while I was there

He gave me you and others to
To share briefly a lifetime too
To smile when things would not go right
To hold you close through darkest nights

Be not sad and know this day
Is mine to have as life still plays
Its role with me young, new again
With Christ you love, Father and friend

Though old became of me you knew
I am again what Gods breath drew
To be once more the man he made
To walk upon Gold streets He paved

My heart though pressed to be with you
Knows all too well one day you too
Will be with me where I reside
Past Heaven's gate well and alive

Love came and called for me to come
To be again, to share Kingdom
With King you love who welcomed me
Raising this man who He set free

Be strong for me and those you love
Know well my heart I too think of
You who wept when I did leave
I left but wait so please believe

I wait and as others wait for those
That came this day as GOD so chose
To be again, so wait I will
As my heart does for you that filled
My time once there

Witten for Iris Sisco on behalf of your father
Manuel  Rodriguez

My belated condolences, Edwin Flores
