I Went to Your Grave Today {A Poem}


I went to your grave today-
first time.
I wipe the snow
from the cold metal marker
bearing your name.
Tears flow
A hard day
Regret over words
I thought I had
more time to say.
The ground gives no answer
Story-filled stones stare in silence
So I look up to the Son.
You are not under the mound of dirt
with dead flowers and crushed bows.
You are in my heart.
Miss you, my friend.
I went to your grave today-
last time.
For you are not there
You are Home.

-Debbie Neal Crawford

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. -from 2 Corinthians 5:8

Today you will be with me in paradise. -from Luke 23:43

These promises from the Bible are true only for those who know Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
