Passing with Love

written by Michael Castillo

In Memory of Sister Sharon Burden who loved Yahweh our Father

 

There are words to write on pages and lessons to be learned…

There is time to rearrange our lives in this world…

There is meaning in a passing of someone that you love…

Though it seems they’re here forever, forever’s not enough…

The impression that they made, while living through your days…

How they seem so very brave, while living through their pain…

The wisdom that they gave, is so secure in your mind…

And the dreams that they made, they need to come alive…

 

There are places to be seen, there are places you walk by…

It reminds you of their dreams, it reminds you of their lives…

You know it’s ok to cry sometimes, everyone needs someone by their side…

Da…da…da…da…da…da…da….

 

Their beauty’s still here in our hearts and minds…

Their wisdom’s here in what they left behind…

Da…da…da…da…da…d…da…

 

But something they’ve done better than ourselves, they’ve placed themselves behind us on the shelves…

A gift they’ve left for me and you to have…

Is a love that makes us stronger, a love that makes us stronger…

Yet we’re sad…    Da…da…da…da…da…  (end)
