Ecclesiastes 1:18"For in much wisdom is much grief, and increase of knowledge is increase of sorrow."



A Warrior in Heaven


I talked to him just last week

A friend for many years.

A loss that makes me weak

Respected by all his peers.


A friend I can’t replace

A servant of the Lord.

In a moment of time and space

He fell on death’s awful sword.


I’m sad at his demise

Another of life’s cruel twists

It should come as no surprise

As God goes down His List.


It was time to bring him home

Our loss our Saviour’s gain.

Jr’s family’s all alone

As they deal with the pain.


Grief we all must bear

As loved ones pass away

Although we shed a tear

God must have his way.


A warrior in Heaven

Is our Masters gain

At any time or season

He can send His Holy Train.


Have your ticket ready

Accepted from His Son.

My friend's faith was steady

His earthly battles won.


Luke April 7th 2010

Sorry to hear of your loss, and his family loss, your words tell of your sadness, and knowing he is with the Lord is our comfort.
