~*~ I Miss You~*~

I miss you so much, darling
And somehow I think you know
How much my heart is hurting...
How it broke to let you go.
God only let me keep you
For such a little while...
Yet in that short but sweet time
You made my life a smile.
My heart was badly battered.
Fate had given it a shove.
You filled it with your friendship
And healed it with your love.
Then Jesus came to rescue you
For a much needed rest.
I know that you are with Him
For He only takes the best.
The years we shared were precious
And you're still close to me.
I can feel you in each heartbeat...
Touch you in each memory.
I know you're blessed and happy
Yet somehow I sense you wait
Until I make that journey...
Until I reach that Eastern Gate.

 "I Am the resurrection and the
 life. He who believes in Me
 though he may die, yet shall
 he live.
 And whoever lives and believes
 in Me shall never die..."
