WHERE TIME HAS NO HOLD


I attended a funeral for the father of a good friend the other day. I was moved by her son’s poem/song presented in honor of his grandfather. After getting his permission to place it here, I share it with you in hopes it will speak to you as it did me. To me it had a message in it about how time goes by so fast and how we need to take time with those we love because before we know it they will be gone. Please read it and see what it says to you:

WHERE TIME HAS NO HOLD


It really seems like we were laughing

Just the other day.

So it goes that, I got older

and time got in the way.

I never even came close to all I had to say.


I must admit I feel an emptiness

Now that you’re not here anymore,

But I take comfort in believing

You’re only passing through a door

To where there’ll be no regrets anymore.


Where we will be

Forever in the presence of the love that made us whole.

Where we will be

Fulfilled beyond imagination

Beatific new creations where time has no hold.

All the hallways of my memory

Are scattered with images of you.

When I add up all those moments

They still seem too few

But death holds no sway over this truth:

That we will be

Forever in the presence of the love that made us whole.

Where we will be

Fulfilled beyond imagination; beatific now creations

Where time as no hold.

Where a day is like a thousand years.

A thousand years like one day.

We will be there, before the Throne

When He wipes all tears away.

I must admit I feel a happiness

Knowing that I’ll see you again.

I will be here, holding on ‘til then

When real living will begin.

Where we will be

Forever in the presence of the love that made us whole.

Where we will be

Fulfilled beyond imagination, beatific new creations

Where time has no hold.

In Loving Memory of My Grandfather, John Berlin Adams
