IS TIME THE ONLY HEALER

Comfort vainly sought as friends and family gather round;

Broken hearts and endless tears, no solace to be found.

Flowers gray and skies, even birds, prove troublesome.

Friend’s kind words and you wonder where they are coming from.

.

.

Can nothing ever replace this grief?  Is time the only cure?

How can a mortal struggle on this hopeless grief endure?

We miss that one.  That face we see through days and sleepless nights!

Remembering joys and sorrows shared with many shared delights.

.

.

Is there no respite, no relief, no kind forgetfulness?

I wish I knew!  But I am not God.  Ignorance I confess.

But this I know; God know and cares, He really cares for you!

Meanwhile there is something you must learn, just trust.  He will guide you through!

.

.

The time will come, no one knows when you will start to realize.

Seems suddenly the grief is gone, God’s comfort a surprise!

Through it all know you were led, through that darkest night.

Trust Him, your true Comforter!  His way is always right!

.

.

For all who suffer loss!  It is not easy but God does care!
