Print Save Become a Fan
They had a celebration for me.
I had hoped that you would be there,
It was really quite an honor.
I longed for you to come and perhaps to share.
As they paid me this homage,
I wondered wistfully why you chose to avoid,
This glad commemoration,
Of my life and the teachings I employed.
Throughout the happy banquet,
I longed to see your warm familiar face.
My eyes could not be diverted,
From that most desolate empty space.
Where could they possibly be?
What is more important than this jubilation?
How could they not know
I would miss them at this auspicious celebration?
What more could I have given?
What more could I have possibly provided or done?
Did I not confer entirely?
The most precious legacy ~ my one and only Son.
