Her Journey’s Just Begun


Don’t think of her as gone away her journey’s just begun.

Life holds so many faucets, this Earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting from the sorrow and the tears

In a place of warmth  and comfort where there are no days and no years.


Think how she must be wishing that we could know today,

How nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched.

For  nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much.
