Dear Lord,

Time fleets by and we begin to realize 
How very special relationships can be.
However when you are young, it is hard to visualize
The loss of friends, lovers, and family

But life affords us lost moments of pleasure.
Memories of events we treasure. 
We have one constant we can count on.
That is you my God and your holy son.

Jesus, is the example we follow
His life was the ultimate sorrow.
Through your supreme sacrifice we are given,
An opportunity to be totally forgiven.

So that the private chambers of our hearts can excel,
To become a place where our Jesus can dwell.
So we put aside the lost moments of yesterday.
In order to prepare tomorrow for a new day.

Please give us some comfort and grace.
Until we see your radiant face.
I sign with love and devotion,
