I know not where they come from
Those the Lord lets into our lives!
We allow them to linger
Being fathers, mothers, husbands or wives.
They stay with us forever,
Or until they depart.
Leaving us to cry
And mend our broken hearts.
It’s not their mind to do this,
They do not have a choice.
They are simply commanded
To follow the Angel’s voice.
And while we’re left behind
And our hearts are filled with sorrow
Be comforted in knowing
They’ll be with the Lord tomorrow.
