She Is Just Away
A reassuring message that the departed is only just away and lives on forever through nature and in the heart.
She is just away
When death walks by with quiet tread
to touch a loved one who’s then led
away from sleep, away from pain,
to walk in joy and live again…
You’ll hear her on a whispered breeze,
a calling bird in swaying trees…
Do not weep long, but lift your eyes,
you’ll see her glory in God’s skies.
She’ll be there in a swallow’s flight…
her eyes in stars on a velvet night…
her courage strong in every tree…
her name carved well, for eternity.
Hide not your love within your heart,
for she will always be a part
of you and everything you do,
for death is naught when love is true.
