Heaven Is Smiling

 

It seems like yesterday when the pearly gates opened and welcomed you home;

4 years later and your presence, or should I say your absence, still rings strong.

The glue, the beauty, the laughter, the one who held us down and held us together, without you, our family just isn’t the same;

Despite the time that has lapsed and all that has happened since, I still find myself calling your name.

Melissa Anne Moore, my sister, confidant, ride or die, my friend;

It couldn’t be more true when they say all good things will come to an end.

I used to ask God why, it’s too soon, we still had things to do;

Little did I understand that your work was done, your purpose fulfilled, and your time here was through.

You were born so I could live;

Not because of illness or necessity, but to teach me what it meant to truly give.

Give of your time, tools, and talents, because our days are numbered;

This life we have is a one shot deal before we reach that eternal slumber.

Through you I discovered purpose and passion and was introduced to a life that transcends time;

Who would have known that after you entered the Omega chapter, I’d become part of the oldest and coldest of the Divine 9.

How I wish you could have been here, seen me cross those burning sands as I saw you 15 years ago;

But I sensed your spirit, heard a whisper, and felt your heavenly touch, I could hear the trumpets in heaven blow.

Life is different, my world not the same, and what I wouldn’t do for one last talk;

But I accept God’s will is better than my understanding and I thank Him for length of our walk.

Today is your birthday and we will continue to praise God’s name and celebrate your life;

 I will continue to honor your name and carry your torch and legacy you started is now my plight.

As we think of  how much we miss you, we may shed a few tears, laugh at the memories, and remember the good times as we travel the miles;

As much as I miss you, I thank God for the time we had and when it’s all said and done, I can see Heaven smile. ©
