I'll Be With You by Anneliese Garrison, RN
© written 7/23/03

He who stands here today
weep not for me.
For where I am in eternity
one day you will be.
Weep not for me
my friends and dear family.

But talk to God today and everyday.
I too will be listening just across the way.

When you cry,
I will be your comfort.
When you hurt,
I will ease your pain.
When you're happy,
I will be your laughter.
When you are weak,
I will be your strength.

I am still a mother, a sister,
an aunt, wife to my husband and a friend to all of you.

Only now, you will not feel the warm touch
of my hand.
Now, you will be touched
by an Angel.

I never left you --

Now, I am with you all
