When the day to depart arrives
And such sorrow it leaves behind;
The mood is melancholy
So hard the right words to find.
It brings to memory all the times
Of joy their smile brought;
The endurance in their character
In which hard times they fought.
And their generous and loving ways
Will always remain in your heart;
With all the good times shared
Will be treasured now that you’re apart.
But hope will always sustain
This desire to meet once again;
As your faith removes the sting
Of eternal separation and pain.
Let’s hope they met the Lord
Before they departed this earth;
Surrendered their heart unto Jesus
And accepted His sacrifice of worth.
And this is how you’ll know
You will meet again one day,
And enjoy heaven’s beauty forever
And the purity of Jesus’ ways.
