Love's Not Diminished
You were my child here below,
But now immortal as I grow old,
For I have slowly come to know,
In little glimpses that unfold.
You were taken to be protected,
And are with family up above,
So I am glad you weren't infected
And live within the greatest love.
The years stretch out so very long,
But yesterday's always the day you left
And I have found that I am strong,
For Jesus saves from feeling bereft.
In Him I know it is still unfinished,
And I will hold the one who I miss,
Though years pass,love's not diminished,
For it is a chain anchored in bliss.
