Thank God For Pearl

Rating: 4.8
I went to church when I was five,

Sunday School, never missed.
I looked over; who did I see?

Well, of course, I saw Pearl teaching.



Time went by and I got older,

I graduated to the "big church".

I looked over, I sat on the left.

Who was on the right, Pearl.



Once a month, every month,

Usually the first Sunday… Food`s aplenty.

Go downstairs to eat, who`s there?

Right again. Pearl, with bowl in hand, always happy.



Time goes by, I'm married now.

It's Sunday. Church again; this time with family.

I look to the right, across the aisle,

and who`s there? Right again. Pearl…



1999, it's a very sad Sunday in church.

My Gramzer, upfront in casket; she passed away.

I stood up, turned around, I said a few words.

Who do I see? Pearl, with handkerchief, wiping away a tear.



It`s Sunday, Church, Choir time.

I walk up front and once again,

Looking behind me, I see...

Pearl, ready to sing for Jesus.



Time goes by; my whole family is with me.

We're on the left, as usual.

It's been 55 years since that first Sunday.

I look over. Who do I see? I see Pearl once again.



Pearl, I thank God for you…

You had never missed the Sunday School. Going to church while you were five was interesting. Discovering pearl in the right was interesting. Memory of life was amazingly observed. This is nicely shared poem.10
