I'M Coming Home Someday - Poem by Melvina Germain

Sad be the day my thoughts do vary,
the strength of my ways has long disappeared.
In my weakness it’s you I’ll always carry
yes, in the depth of my soul your image appears.

In darkness we grew as all suffering ceased,
acceptance and belief became our peace.
Your encouragement left me with Blessings to share,
our Father in Heaven whispered gently in your ear.

May tenderness and love be our infinite grace
as the brightest star light the darkest sky.
Though this room is empty your soul I embrace,
the beauty of your spirit will never die.

Love never leaves my heart and soul and the
distance seems not so far away. Soon my day will
come when the river runs cold and the warmth in
your smile will bring me home someday.
