Roselle

Roselle

This day
Two years past

Some say a life taken
Too soon?
I say a life given
To faith
For faith
At peace after so much

The quiet voice whispers,
“At last the suffering has ended”
The pain transfers from his body
To our hearts
Turns to sorrow
And sinks

Go if you must
But know…
Fate controls your journey
Faith prepared your soul
