In Memory of C V Bryant
The afternoon was high
Just before the fireworks lite the sky
The call came
God was calling your name
We mad messages for you to hear
As your time came near
Several moments passed
As they played until the last
Two of your nine
Carried your entire line
Sending Warmth and love
As you were called home for God above
The air became different today
We struggle with so much left to say
Yet we know you could not stay
No cure ever found
For moments, this world had no sound
In the night sky
Fireworks flew so high
Fitting bursts of bright light
Guiding you home in the night
In life you had a face of courage in all things
Strong willed and your spirit did not bend
Trying so long to stay it seemed
Not sure how our hearts would mend
We know you are here in each of us
For in our hearts we always feel your love
This morning the sun came up with a hero gone
He had to go with God and take his walk home
At heavens gates you met loved ones and your brothers in arms
You are at peace and calm
For you know your love will be our guide
You will always be by our side
In the gentle breeze
We will feel at ease
In the moment you cross our thoughts
Heartbroken yet knowing how you fought
We will find comfort knowing we are not far apart
That it’s not a goodbye…this circle does not stop and start
One day the sadness of missed words will fade
We will not cry as we did today
For your presence will be felt in every memory spoken
Now and forever until we meet again as heavens gates open
You did a good job. We will be ok
We Love You
Always is how much and Forever is how long
