Grateful for a life given as grace
Beauty in both heart and face
God's gift for twenty-six years
More than we deserved
Hard to see through tears

Scraps of colored paper were her gift
Our hearts now are torn, our emotions set adrift
Made divinity, read books, gave flicks, played games
This beautiful marriage was more of God's grace
Her husband's world, on the outside, is going up in flames


God is always good and God is always love
Beauty and joy in even this is given from above
I don't begin to understand but I declare what I don't yet see
God promises to transform weeping into dancing, pain into glory
She's home, she's well, her life and body as they were always meant to be
