Forever There Within Our Minds
( For Chad )
The days of weeping slowly pass,
but still within the question why
a life so young could not last,
and one so dear to us must die.
The answers wait another day,
when all our sorrows will be healed.
The giver of life will have His say,
and life’s mysteries are revealed.
Until that day this void we’ll fill
with memories frozen in time.
A part of you is with us still,
as from these shadows we must climb.
A zest for life, your carefree ways
made bright the path of all you met.
Exuberant thoughts filled your days,
a sunny smile we’ll n’er forget.
We’ll reap those thoughts when days are long,
reflections that you left behind.
Your time with us becomes a song,
forever there within our minds.
