Larry Norman Has Passed - Poem by Kathryn Tyler King

When another friend and composer has died,
I was struck again by the shortness of time.
I often find myself yearning and have cried
to finish what God’s inspired me with rhyme.

The songs keep coming, but no way to record.
I know it will get done but it’s taken so long.
No matter, I’ll sing of Him that I’ve adored
and remember those who’ve written a song.

Their music will live for as long as there’s life.
As long as no one oppresses or shuts our mouth.
When there’s a fire burning to end all of strife
That leads souls to heaven, to Him it’s about.

Larry and Rich and Keith I will remember you.
Your music inspired me and moved me to tears.
But to God be the Glory for He gave songs anew
To fill our hearts with love and joy with no fear.

Your turbulent words and purity astounded me.
Your closeness to God has kept my life inspired.
For you will be remembered here and over the sea.
I’ll keep telling God’s story and never get tired.
