My Nephew and Friend, he was both to me
a wonderful Brother, he was always for me.
Just like Jesus, he would always be there
many secrets we did share.
Sometimes the glad and sometimes the sad.
From the impositions of this world he is free
now he can sing blessed melodies.
He sang some here but many more there
Joyful steps have replaced his chair.
He frolics in the meadows, he has taken on youth
all because he trusted in Truth......
he would be with Jesus who Came to Free us.
His love for Jesus was fervent, unmatched
when often experiencing a rough patch.
For he had challenges with health
but Heavenly wealth.
In his spirit, he did not have to feel it.
To him, we have a choice to be glad or sad
so he chose to be glad instead of mad......
If something upset him, he would look to his Lord
and His Praises he would afford.
That's why most times, he sounded cheery
sometimes he would be a little weary.
Now he has his Reward beyond that Shore
all his wishes in sight, who could ask for more?
For Jesus has a Measuring Rod
Gladness for sadness on this earthly sod.
I can imagine how rich he would be
Rejoicing with Jesus in that Land of the Free.
Spiritual riches, how many there are
and physical comforts beyond those stars.
Beauty for ashes, that's what they say
in that Blessed Homeland, Jesus paved the way.
A Field of Blossoms for your front yard
a glorious waterfall at your back
My Nephew, my Brother, my Friend
there is nothing you lack.
I am rejoicing for you and I love you!
