We all know grief. We have all lost someone dear to us. They say death is a part of life. Idk about that. I can tell you I don’t like it. I don’t like losing people. Yes, I know if they are saved they go to Heaven and dance with Jesus. But we are still here. And some days I really miss them.

Here are the lyrics to one of my new songs I am working on.

 But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. – John 14:26 AMP

grief

Ocean of Memories

Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

In the middle of the room sat a hospital bed
silver side rails held her in while lifting her head
I grabbed the black remote control
Raised her up once more to hold her close

She was trapped in a body that just wouldn’t move
Yet I could see her inside, Her spirit you cannot hide

Oceans of Memories flooded her mind
She looked at me without speaking a word
One blink for yes, Two blinks for no
I squeezed her hand and said, “I know”

I’m glad Mama was home at the time of her life’s end
Those last days were hard for my mother and my friend
Can I just hit the rewind?
Back to a time without that hospital bed

Im trapped in a body that just won’t move
You can see me inside, Your Spirit you cannot hide
grief 2
Oceans of memories flooding my mind
God look at me without saying a word
One blink for yes, Two blinks for no
Lord squeeze my hand and tell me, “I know”

Waves of love and waves of grief
Holy Spirit comfort me through this time
Oceans of memories flowing like tides

Oceans of memories flooding my mind
God look at me without saying a word
One blink for yes, Two blinks for no
Lord squeeze my hand and tell me, “I know”
