Light Released

Light Released
By Amy J Williams

Another light has been released from my life
The sorrow, the sadness, the darkness, the strife

My heart aches, my head pounds, my eyes burn
I question why Death has so quickly returned

I’m alone in my home, there's no laughter or joy
My God, why this pain do you deploy?

But then in my solitude, I no longer feel alone
He reminds me, life is eternal beyond body or bone

In that I find comfort, peace fills my anguished soul
Her light has released but through Him her spirit remains whole


Written tonight as I waited for the call, I knew it wouldn't be long as my family had gathered together in Utah and my brothers gave her one last blessing. A blessing of release.

I love you Merrleen - thank you for being my "mom" for the last 28 years!
