Forever There Within Our Minds--By Marcus Omer--United States

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.

  2. Marcus, this poem serves as such a beautiful dedication to someone whose life was shortened and taken. As Reverend Reynolds has indicated above, it touches the heart and soul of anyone who reads these beautiful words. Very inspiring! Sheri

  3. The most a soul without a body can hope for is that someone will remember them.

  4. Dear Marcus,

    A touching dedication to a loved one who was taken at such a young age which is heartbreaking to those who loved them.


  5. I loved the wonderful tribute you wrote in this poem of a young loved one but more than that your faith that all your questions will be answered by the giver of life one day. I know that is true. Thank you for sharing your talent with us here on Whispers.
