The Sweet Good-bye

At the last, let it be a sweet good-bye.
All business finished.
All affairs tidied.
All loose ends attended.
All regrets squared away.
All loved ones gathered.
All words of love spoken.
All life lived fully.
One last look,
one last squeeze of the hand,
one last deep breath,
one last sweet good-bye
and a final eager step towards Jesus. 

This week’s prayer:  We pray for sweet good-byes for those we love.  Amen.
