Monday Poem- “Old Friend 5”

Old Friend 5

Today is jubilant
I understand not why
its not everyday you celebrate
when a friend of yours has died…

…lament has turned to gladness
(though it may seem hard to tell)
as I talk to God I think upon
how you used to pray as well…

…and you used to read your Bible
because you wanted more of Him
and you loved to tell the people
how Christ died to cleanse their sin…

…as I mourn today I realise
that you knew Gods loving grace
and in this fact I find my comfort
that your in a better place…
