A Mighty Warrior

I didn't leave you alone, Dad.
I stayed close to your bedside.
I held your hand and talked to you.
You were waiting to join your bride.

We talked about our Savior,
about heaven and pearly gates,
trying to imagine all the glory
that for us awaits.

I can't begin to imagine
a life without my dad.
Tears mixed with memories.
How long will I be sad?

You always wore God's armor.
You gave us all your best.
A mighty warrior for our Lord.
Be at peace, Dad; it's time to rest.

I will be okay, Dad. I'm your daughter.
I wield a mighty sword.
I'm armed with what you taught me,
the Word of our Lord.
