A Poem for a Friend in Mourning

Rick Swartzentrover















0, Little one
  Why can’t you see
That when you cry
  I cry with thee


I feel your pain
  I feel your loss
Remember My Son who
  Died on a cross


I know you loved him
  I loved him too
I’d never hurt anyone
  Just to keep you


I stood by your side
  As you rebelled and went wild
To show you my love
  I gave you a child


I have always been here
  Just a heart beat away
I prayed all your heart prayers
  When you found nothing to say


So next time you’re crying
  All tired and blue
Remember to seek me
  And let me love you.
