Love Never Ends

I had a long chat with a dear friend the other night.  I didn’t know it would be my last, but while he’s still alive as I write this he is well on his way on that final journey from this life to the next.  I wrote the following words for him, although I am not sure if he got this in time to read them.  I hope they will bless his family in this time.  My friend has suffered long, but has always been a blessing to others regardless of what he was facing in his own life. 

I love you, dear friend.  You will be with me always. 

FOREVER

Sometimes

someone comes along

And touches you

In a special way

A hand

A heart

A prayer

And changes your life

By the love of Christ

In their soul

Reflected in the eyes

As they look at you

And you have

A friend forever

In this world and the next

Because love never ends.

  2. I was just told that, although my friend went with Jesus late this afternoon, this poem reached him in time for it to be read to him before he passed. Please remember to show your love for one another. You never know when it might be the last time you have the opportunity in this life to do so.
