When Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow


Shakespeare's Juliet made the words famous
In Romeo and Juliet
It is not of romance that I would
Have them spoken though
When a saint has kept the faith
Looking to the God of mercy and grace
Has made his crossing to Heaven's gate
Those left behind in sadness bid adieu
But rejoice with the angels
As they bid him take his place
Within the Celestial City
His Eternal resting place
Where time and decay no longer bind
The spirit soars in the rhythm of Eternity

When Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow(c)2003 Quentin Clingerman
