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

Forever is the Soul

I see the wreckage

The empty fields

It’s been a year

Yet still it’s near

That violent wind

Twisting through town

Cutting the strong woods to the ground

I see the barren plot of land

Where once the old brick church did stand

Gone now

But I know it’s alive

In the hearts and souls that did survive

For a church is not a building

Neither a town what’s built around

But the people living

Breathing

Changing

Their heartbeat is it’s sound

Their echo is eternal

Forever is the soul

So let us not forget

That hope is our goal

It cannot be erased

By an angry twister’s raging face

For we have an eternal Resting Place

Free from sorrow

Free from storm

Happy

Safe

Blest

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

Heaven’s Sound

Oh when you hear 
For the first time
The songs of eternity
Ringing in your ears
Then you will know
The most beautiful sound
That no one on earth
Has ever heard
Then you will hear
Those glorious words
“well done my faithful servant”
And though right now
You can’t hear us around

One day your hearing
Will be found
In majestic
Heaven’s sound
