The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website



Alice C. Bateman

Your familyís left here grieving

And they donít know what to do

More than oneís afraid that

They wonít make it without you


We just donít understand it

The suff'ring that is here

Why does our God demand it

Why is death our biggest fear


When we cross the final boundary

Close the book that is our life

We should go into a better plane

One thatís free of all the strife


One thatís free of all the burdens

All the pain and hurts we feel

But when someone we love dies

The pain is all too real


Do your grieving, itís essential

But then let your loved one go

Their tomorrow will be brighter

Than those of us left here can know


If they have learned their lessons

Walked the good path all their days

You can be sure they are in Heaven

Basking in His Holy Grace
