Leaves from a Tree

Standard

Inspired – but written for all of us who have lost a loved one.

Leaves from a Tree

People pass away like leaves fall from a tree.

Some are too young, beautiful green and ripped off in a breeze.

.

Many we know are just entering their prime.

Yet some have aged, not crumbled, and we say: “they put in their time”.

.

Others fall brilliantly in layers of color.

Death early but expected, leaves and lives filled with strength and valor. 

.

Let us keep good memories alive, let them rustle around. 

Savor them like fall leaves as they cover the ground.

.

Variegated lives leave memories, they DAZZLE.

Souls up to in Heaven, let us follow the narrow road they travel.

.

We don’t always know the time or the place. 

But blessedly we pray each knows God’s Grace.

.

It is forgiveness we too must embrace. 

Don’t hold bad memories, not even a trace.

.

They led unique lives in all the beautiful splendor. 

Know their work was purposeful, and their hearts were so tender. 

.

All generations seem short lived as they pass thru the grave. 

Fallen friends are like leaves, let us all kiss them goodbye and wave.

.

Loved ones leave, but their LOVE we still embrace.

Remember them Lord, THEY RAN A GOOD RACE.
