A Tribute to the Ones I Love
The following poem was written in honor of the life of Diane Susan Livingston 1957-2012.
Over the hill, I’ve walked this life;
No longer frustrated by sickness and strife.
A tribute I’ve made to the ones I love;
Giving them presents of stems from the grub.
Just after many, I’ve made my own way,
But now I see shadows that soon fade away.
Listen, the clock ticking from far beyond here,
The truth I behold in my heart I hold here.
Just when I walked down streets of clear glass;
I saw the One waiting all I did was glimpse passed.
He held me so close that I did not even cry;
He showed me the moments of life passing by.
I fell to my knees and saw clearly the truth;
That opened my heart to receive a life new.
I gaze now a beauty that trembles inside;
He’s made all things new, He’s shifted my stride.
I do not regret the choices I’ve made;
For now all I see, is its lead me to be saved.
Clear oceans of blue, they wash over me,
A place of true peace and of serenity.
I wish I could kiss each one of you bye;
And I know I will miss you and remember you cry.
Goodbye to the ones I have held dear to me;
Goodbye to the ones who will live eternally.
I will see soon your faces to shine like the Son;
United we’ll be forever as one.
