You may weep for me,
but, remember, I am laughing above.
Darkness may engulf the casket,
but, remember, I am dancing in the light.
Grief has broken your heart,
but, remember, mine is rejoicing with the Savior.
Your tears are a close companion,
but, remember, someday God himself will wipe them away.
You may long for my presence,
but, remember, I am where I belong.
You may despise the good-bye,
but, remember, I will greet you again.
*I wrote this tonight as we were waiting for our Bible study to start. (Max Lucado series titled, "You'll Get Through This." Of course, tonight's lesson would appropriately be called, "Good-bye to Good-byes."
