Grief

by Monica Sherlock

I thought about you today 
How is your new home
A mansion in the sky
Streets of gold gates of pearls
You’re not a homeless dog or a person under a bridge
You’re with God
One day, I will be with you 
In the mansion in the sky
With you, Kevin, Mom, and Dad
Oh happy day
No more suffering, no more pain 
With our Savior
