Things Best Said

I often felt God cheated me
when He took you away;
for I had barely turned fifteen
by that April day.
You had changed so very much
from the man you were before,
indeed you were a new creation
someone I could adore.
Just seven years in your new life,
the violence was gone...
the evil crutch of alcohol
no longer you leaned on.
For you had met your great Savior...
Jesus Christ the King,
and when you gave your heart to Him
you gained everything.
No longer did the call to gamble
entice you so to stray,
instead the man you'd now become
taught children how to pray.
Then came that tragic April morn
when He called you home.
I held you dying in my arms,
and I felt so alone.
The burning of my endless tears...
the hole left in my heart,
I screamed in rage and agony...
why did we have to part!
But now I know Him too, dear Dad
and I've put it all to rest;
'cause when you left I looked to Him,
and He brought me through the test.
I know now His taking of you
was meant for me to grow,
the illustration of your life
was the way that He would show...
He's the only master builder
making all things new,
and because He worked your change back then
it has changed me too.
I pray now godly submission
be our legacy,
and move the heart of every man
within our family.
