I Will Smile - Poem by Tracey Tucker

In Loving Memory of Derrick Gilbert Johnson
July 6,1963 – July 6,2009

I will smile when I feel like crying
I will smile when sorrow is threatening
Instead of lamenting on the sadness
I will reminisce on precious memories

Instead of mourning that you’re gone
I will thank God that you were born
Because you were a gift to us
And depart this earth, one day you must

So I will thank God for the times we had
The good memories will make me glad
When the clouds hang over
I will remember your smile and laughter

I will smile because you were loved
I will smile because you were sent from above
I will smile because you’re now at rest
Our heart weeps but God knows best
