tomorrow (or later today), we say our final farewell. but the person you were in the last few years - that was not you.

i search my mind for memory, but so few float to the surface. i only feel -

so much, that i can't put into words

love, that surpasses all understanding
that forgives all wrongs
that forgives all mistakes
so great and unconditional that nothing else matters, and the world disappears

at the deathbed, we all see the face of God. you, as a child returning home; i, as a sinner hearing His voice.

a long chapter is ended, but a new one begins. and the yearning for home grows ever stronger.

for the day i cross over to that distant shore, where you all wait.

yea, though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no evil, for thou art with me.
