Life is Always Ahead

Life is always ahead, exciting and full of adventure.
What has been lives on in the memories
of those with whom we have shared our love.
Memories that make us laugh and cry
and sometimes make us angry.
Nothing can erase the life that has been lived,
give thanks for the good times,
remember what we learnt together in the bad times,
for every memory makes us all that we are.
Today begins as yet another adventure
into the hope that God has given us.
Not into darkness and decay, but into light and love,
for God is love and in Him is no darkness found.
Enjoy me as I was, look forward to me as I will be;
whole again in the presence of God.


James Tipp
