Maybe He’s Crying

Maybe he’s crying.
Maybe he’s actually sorry he did.
He never meant to hurt us.
The secret will always be hid.
He may have been in agony.
He may have been in pain.
Maybe he’s now down there crying.
Wishing he could be here again.
He may be wishing he could be here
To help those who need his love.
He may be in waiting,
To receive his wings from above.
He may be in wishful thinking.
He may be crying out.
But I’ll never know if he is,
Or what he’s crying about,
If he is in agony,
Or wishes that he were back.
Please let him know I love him so
And ask God to help him to relax.

I am so glad taught me about being absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, and the example of the thief on the cross beside Jesus that was assured he would be in paradise with Jesus that day. My cousin is safe with Jesus.

Brother Dear

Aggravation is an easy thing to occur,
Even if it is never intended.
Sometimes easy to forgive,
Yet some friendships are never mended.
What really makes it hurt sometimes is
To know it is your kin.
It is easy to rile someone
If you do the things again.
I wish I knew what it was
That made me shoot my mouth off.
For if an apology is given,
I still feel as though I’m wrong.
Oh brother dear, I’m sorry.
A sister I was not.
But I do still love you.
I hope you don’t think I forgot.
