today i found you gone.
your face, my heart still recalls.
Though, with you I’ll not again walk.
Words once graced your lips.
Filling this heart with pearls.
Slipping back, now I know more.
More of this heart, you openly wore.
Filled with Christ’s love, his peace, confessing.
Today, I found you gone.
Not to far from us, but so far.
Home, forever, but gone from here.
Your face, it remains.
With this hurting heart.
