Rhyme

Trinity

I cried again

My tears were deep

Coming from a place not many see

The place where you are buried

I cry again

Your dad and I cry together

For we will love you, Trinity

Forever

Your time was short

Our arms were barren

Anger rises for the life you weren’t given

But I relinquish those feeling to embrace the truth

That you are living the life we long to

You’re breathing the air we are dying to breathe

You are free

So I will not trap you in my sorrow

In my pain

I’ll hand you over to His arms of grace

Knowing one day we will see your face

10 Years

In 10 years it’ll make sense
What I should’ve seen
Should’ve done
Should’ve known
That You were working
Through everything
For Your glory
In 10 years Your love will be sweeter
Your grace even deeper
As it’s carried me
Sanctified me
Changed me
In 10 years I’ll have more “thank Yous”
More reasons to trust You
More tears, more laughs
More hard lessons learned
More blessed-assurance
I’ll be closer to eternity
Closer to You
But if 10 years doesn’t come
And all I have is today
Did I live it right?
Am I ready
To step over the Jordan
To the New Jerusalem?
Am I ready to die
Am I ready to live
Today

February 3rd

You were my age
You were young
You were brave
Braver than most
You had hopes
And dreams
And plans
Just like us all
You woke up that day
Like any other
Not knowing
That it would be your last
Not knowing 
That you would be a hero
You gave your life
For the peace of Jerusalem
The Holy City
For our country
The Promise Land
You gave your life
For HaTikvah
For us all

In memory & honor of Hadar Cohen, a 19-year-old daughter of Israel who gave her life for her country.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, let those who love You be at rest.” {Psalm 122:6}
