I Did Not Know 


I did not know
That when I said goodbye
Goodbye would be forever. 


I did not pause
To breathe you in,
To hold you safe within
The circle of my love. 


I did not stop to watch
You walk away,
To note your gait,
The smile you flashed on turning. 


I did not know,
How could I know
God had his hand
Outstretched and waiting? 


I did not see the mist around you,
Could not hear the gentle summons. 


 


---In memory of those who were lost September 11, 2001---

No better memory could you write. So many lives lost without a goodbye to anyone but lifted up into God's care forever too.
