Not coached like me to sermonize
My father spoke the finest
Words, summoned from his life with her,
She lay unable now to answer, not needing to
He knew, and he intuited his time was short,
So aptly and prophetically he spoke his love,
His promise took our breaths away,
We, his loved ones in support
Now needing some assistance
As he kissed her still cold face and said,
"I'll see you soon sweetheart."
Six months passed and he content
With children and grandchildren
And he with life well lived and nothing more to keep him
Woke where his promise was fulfilled
And where his Maker's promise led.
