6-2-14 Reunion (a Sonnet)

JoyfulReunion

Some random thing brings forth soft memory

Of someone dear who’s left these mortal years,

And how I long to hold them close to me!

The thought of our reunion brings fresh tears.

Imagine all the joy that day will bring:

Such overflowing love, such tender sighs!

I scarce can wait, my heart so aches to sing,

To gaze upon their face, into their eyes.

Then how much more will be that golden day

When I at last meet Jesus Christ my Lord!

The sacrifice, His life He had to pay;

Now here He is! How great is this reward!

With loved ones near, no longer to be grieved

Because He died for me, and I believed!
