It was the shocking news that brought tears to my eyes.
And you made me remember what it was like to cry.
On that dreadful day, God decided it was your time, your time to go,
So He took your life away.
And everyone felt the pain, the pain that you had been suffering for so long.
It’s harder than I ever thought life could be without you.
You taught me values
Lessons in life I would learn
You taught me to respect
I gave you love in return
You have always been in my life
Through thick and thin
And now my lonely journey
Without you will begin.
For you were my hero
Forever and a day
You will always remain that hero
Till I meet you again some day
I will embrace you in my arms
And hold on tight
I will stand by your side
And you will never leave my sight
The pain does not ease
I pray you are happy
And finally at peace
Such a peaceful place of many deep sorrows,
Where the living walk among solemn rows,
Looking for the grave where memories lie,
Sadly mourning until their own final goodbye,
When they too will quietly lie beneath the sky,
As their loved ones mourn for times gone by
Please remember that you are not alone…we are always here for you.
May the blessings of love be upon you
May its peace abide with you
May its essence illuminate your heart
Now and forever more…
~Sufi Blessing of Love and Peace
