Many Images

Sitting, thinking of you
writing down a prayer
for all of us who loved you
who love you still

Many images
coming to my mind
of good times and sorrow
remembering you

God brought me an image
as we sang to heaven
Christ and the three crosses
his arms open wide

The image I treasure
over the pool
where you gave yourself
humbled yourself to him

Somehow a balm
as the tears came to me
kneeling before God’s altar
knowing you were there

In that heavenly city
in the clouds on high
walking with our savior
watching us from above
