Tribute to a dear friend..

One Day...

by susanjohn

This broken heart can't comprehend
life's rugged roads without my friend.
Flow saddened teardrops' crystal streams;
forever drowned ... our wondrous dreams.

Peace fleeing with the doleful nights,
despairs abound cast endless frights.
True friendship flowered at your side;
my spirit wilted when you died.

Grief-stricken heartsong's somber theme,
till you appeared within a dream.
My broken heart spied where you are,
adorned upon the brightest star.

Rejoice breast deep, God grants my view;

your weary soul's transformed brand new!
Burdens once chained your earthly form ...
His loving arms now keep you warm.

Hosanna sings sweet serenades,
along angelic promenades ...
sheer gratitude for all I've learned,
no longer bound, your freedoms earned.

Soft, hazel eyes that soundly rest;
oh, Dearest Friend, just one request:
with final breath, lest I shall roam ...

grasp firm thy hand; then, lead me home.

Up there above where angels soar,

where harps are played forevermore, 
I long to dwell there by your side … 
I’ll follow You, you’ll be my guide. 
Now, crystal streams wash fallen tears, 
eternal friendship dispels fears … 
bright, faithful spirit glorifies ~ 
forever soaring … starry skies.
