My Loved Ones Past

I sometimes sit down and cry I think of all my loved ones who have died.
Oh! Lord why did you take them from me, were they ready to be freed and taken out of this life.
Free from this world of sin.
Ready for a new beginning.
I think of all of their lives and then it starts to bring on a smile, How each and everyone has touched me, I guess they have the right now to be free. I try to think of them now dancing along a heavenly cloud I wonder if when they look down at me, if they have a smile, If they say to the lord she needs to be set free. Did they really serve all of their time here, laugh all they had to laugh, and shed all of their tears. Though Now they are in a heavenly place I will still miss them everyday of my life, but they helped me to stop and think to do things more right, and to love who I have here maybe buy them a drink.
I think of the words of my friends and family they said they would be with be with me for all eternally. So now I look forward to seeing the smiles on their face when I finally get out of this place. I guess then I will be missed, that is just the way life is, One man ‘s loss is another man’s gain. So I will make the most of my life in which the Lord gave.
