Today is That Day

Today is the day
That Day
14 years past 
she was no more 
a living presence. 

That Day 
her labored shallow 

That Day
I stayed late at work 
to finish. 

That Day
That evening
That night
Time stood still. 

There was no more 
time left to explore ...

Such sadness
in remembering 
the events of 
That Day 
and the many days 
and months 
leading up to it. 

Eight months 
she suffered.

A last family picture 
was taken 
two daughters 
and their husbands 
and a grandson
not yet 5

Today is the day
That Day
she left us all
here on earth.

And although 
my moments 
of intense sadness linger
she is in a better place
and one day, 
I will see her again
there will be no more 
sadness, no more pain
to remember. 

There will only be joy.
Joy that she gave herself to Jesus 
and she is with Him 
in heaven. 

"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying; and there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4)

I thank Jesus she is with Him 
and her pain is gone
and someday, 
my pain too, 
physical, emotional, 
will be gone. 

"Let not your heart be troubled ... ." (John 14:1)
