I held you desperately in my arms
for a few brief moments in eternity;
my broken heart beat defiantly
while I watched you depart from me.

The Son beckoned you to Him
as He told you stories of His love;
your spirit beamed at His mirth
while you marveled at the Heavens above.

The Spirit cradled you by His winds
as He crooned His ecstatic melodies;
your spirit soared at His rapture
while you understood life's mysteries.

I held you tenderly in my arms
for a few brief moments in eternity;
your delicate heart beat faintly
while you were embraced by the Trinity.
