After They Are Gone
When someone we love passes away, We ache, but we go on; Our dear departed would want us to heal, After they are gone.
Grief is a normal way to mend The anguish and pain in our hearts; We need time to remember and time to mourn, Before the recovery starts.
Let's draw together to recuperate, As we go throught this period of sorrow; Let's help each other, with tender care To find a brighter tomorrow.

This poem touched my heart in my time of need and am hoping to pass it on and help others with it. I didn't write it, but it did help me. You are about to see how Oklahomans can pull through hard times. You've lost much, but God is keeping you in His heart and many blessings will find their way into your lives. Don't give up, lean on friends and other family and you can make it through. I'm praying for each and every one of you that has been affected by this tornado.
