Only 18

It should never have happened.

He had so much life to live
And it was cut cruelly short.

It isn’t right and its
certainly not fair.

There are no words of comfort.

No theology can ease
The depth of loss we feel,

In his passing.

In time,
Words of wisdom
Will help us make sense of it all

But for now we only have
A dim awareness

Of the open door
That Brighter country.

All we can do
Is cling to each other

And share the
memories we have

Of him.

At least it brings
A smile in the midst of grief.
