Then One Sad Day
The old man sits alone on the ocean shore
His weather beaten face has lost its' smile
The same face that once was so happy and gay
Has been drawn in pain for a long while.
When his wife was ill he was always there
Helping her any way he possibly could
Until one sad day was her last day on earth_
How the old man feels is easily understood.
The length of our lives offers no guarantees
Being kind to those who lost someone dear
Floods our hearts with a warmth second to none
Letting us know Heavenly Father is very near.
