His Journey’s Just Begun
Don’t think of him as gone away- his journey has just begun.
Life holds so many facets- this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing that we could know today
How nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
