The Other Side of Patience

The Other Side of Patience

Today I remembered,
All of the things we used to do.
And then I remembered,
That they took me away from you.
I see you down there from time to time,
And I wish so much that you wouldn’t cry.
I hope that you’ll figure out,
That I didn’t mean to go,
And I know it’s hard,
Just please don’t miss me so.

I’m looking down on you,
More than you think I do,
So do your best to smile for me,
I know this is hard to get through.
Go on and continue the things you love,
Don’t wait around for me,
Because if you waste your life pretending,
You’ll no longer be able to see.

So open your eyes,
And open your heart,
And do your best to finish everything,
That we never got to start.
Just live for today,
Don’t dwell on the past.
And don’t you dare doubt,
That our memories won’t last.

Remember that in heaven,
I am all right.
Just don’t be so mad,
That I can’t hold you tight.
Try to get by the best that you can,
And remember that this is apart of God’s great plan.
Everything has its reasons,
It was just my time to go,
So don’t think of this as punishment,
But for you to show…

To show how great you are,
And that you’ll go along,
That you will be ok,
And how you are so strong.
Don’t think of this as “goodbye,”
But as a chance to live for me,
Because I really didn’t die,
This was his plan for me.

So don’t worry so much,
It’ll be okay.
And when your time comes,
I’ll meet you at the gates.

-Emily C. Nace
