No glory found in tragedy,
....With eyes denying pain-filled tears;
As waterfalls halt over masses of hurt---
....Where a loved life fuses with our fears;.
We must not question God's purpose,
....Though comfort won't comfort the empty space;
And during this period of bewilderment---
....Remember--- they're in a better place.
For God is too wise and too trustworthy,
....To give leverage for any one mistake;
The King of Kings would never consent---
....A burden our families could not take.
So feel the angel wings of consolation,
....Wipe away any outpour of tears of sorrow;
And feel the radiation of a lost smile---
....That we'll hold in the distant tomorrow.
Even with the void that fills our hearts,
....Unable to wholly vanish or erase;
They now wear God's crown of paradise---
....Forever resting in a better place.
Heaven is rejoicing that our angel
....Is now without hurt and melancholy;
For they have been deemed eternal life---
....And our tragedy, is heaven's glory.
