 Reflections of My Heart

Only A Prayer Away




Only
A Prayer Away



This one you love with all your heart
Will be with you each and every day
The love and memories shared
Will be your light as you make your way

There is no answer for Why now Lord
His decisions we cannot question
Nor be prepared for the final earthly goodbye
When it is our loved one He does beckon

We must celebrate this life
That so deeply touched that of others
And learn from their example
Of the extended hand to each and every brother

They are one, of whose greatness shall live
Long beyond their earthly passing
Their mark left upon this earth
Is one forever lasting

So take comfort in not just who they were
But more in what they left behind
For this life today we celebrate
The greatness of this soul so kind

The love that was shared
In your heart will forever stay
The oneness will always live
Because they're only a prayer away

It's never goodbye
Just see you later...

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ

You Raise Me Up
