“God, of your goodness, give me yourself; you are enough for me, and anything less that I could ask for would not do you full honour. And if I ask anything that is less, I shall always lack something, but in you alone I have everything”


she wonders,why this could happen to her,
of all her plunders,
this one tears into her heart like no other..
.and it wasnt even her fault.
Divinity took the life of her one so dear,
The epitome of her worst fear,
He was Ripped from her grasp,
To go home at last,
To that place in the sky,
THough she tries to hide it,
the pain she cannot deny,
She tries to be strong,
Even though it is wrong,
And conceals the pain of her loss,
If only she would know,
That strength is not found in courage,
Or the ability to keep a straight face,
But its found in that little place,
That pumping heart in her chest,
And until she realizes this,
She may never rest.
Because the love that flows around her is so deep,
It floods over her and radiates with heat,
Because little does she know,
Even though they dare not show,
They love her so,
And as she lives,
So does he,
In her smile,
In her laughter,
That rings through the church rafters,
And even when she refuses,
And tries to shrink behind her bruises,
In his memory she lives
and she loves
and she breathes
and she stumbles
and she conquers
and he is happy

This is about my best friend, who just lost her brother in a terrible accident. Grief is something so powerful, so consuming...it can be turned around and make an impact on others. The way you react to trials makes you who you are.
