Your day is now complete. No more pain nor defeat. A look into you beautiful mind we would have loved to see. The smile that shined so free. Surprised by what you’ve seen, maybe? Was it a light, a loved one, angels dancing free? Maybe the face of Jesus Christ sitting right in front of thee.
Your day is now complete. Move so free. The energy you once had now explodes uncontrollably. Is it beauty, is it green, do flowers glisten in a sparkling burst of nature we have never seen? The faces - we can only imagine all whom you see.
Your day is now complete. But, don’t think for one second your life here is complete, because you see - you have created an amazing masterpiece! Our eyes will glisten, our hearts will ache for the void your soul now creates, but oh - Oh! What you did complete! A legacy of man, woman, child ....an amazingly strong family.
Today is complete, but until tomorrow, may we be guided by your wisdom, guided by your dreams, guided by your perseverance to set yourself free. Today grandma, my selfish heart breaks. Your beautiful soul has won the race. Well done good and faithful servant. YOU, you simply are complete!
