Ending Too Soon
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



What emotions can come
After the passing of a loved one
Who had such a future in view
When death came as a surprise
And brought tears to our eyes
For a life that was ended too soon

Too soon came the echo
Too soon came the reply
It wouldn't erase from the mind
And memories well up
Of the loved one's short life
In total consumption we find

Only God knows the reason
Of some life's short season
While we're in the wondering why?
And grace for our grieving
Praise God we're receiving
Until our meeting in Heaven on high

The pictures and stories
What an emotional ride
As they capture the life of someone
And we weigh in our minds
Of the happier times
But now it had ended too soon!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
