I Won’t Say Goodbye


…and now that the time has come,
I won’t say goodbye
I’ll tell her to say hello to my grandmother for me
I’ll tell her to let my father know I forgave him years ago
I’ll tell her to give my mother a hug
I’ll tell her that her kids will be just fine
I’ll tell her that I’ll continue shining her light
and telling her story of life
to millions of young women
who need a good example of what a real
woman acts like
I’ll tell her that she is my hero
and that I love her
and that I thank God for giving
us an angel named Tamara

But I won’t say goodbye
because eternity never ends
and love goes on forever
and memories remain fresh
for millennia
and her soul will
continue uplifting spirits
long after her body
quit the race of life
and there is no need for sadness
when a purpose has been served
and God calls us home
to his peaceful arms

I won’t say goodbye,
but I will thank God
for finally allowing her to rest in peace
Rest in Peace my dear friend…
I’ll see you soon…
