As A Gentle Sparrow Flies

My Grandmother passed this last December, just days before Christmas. It had been several years since our entire family had been together in one place... leave it to Grandma to bring us all together for the holidays. This is a poem I wrote in remembrance of her.

As a Gentle Sparrow Flies

When you see me it's my prayer that you have peace
And you understand that you're not losing me
I'll be with you when you need me by your side
Just as swiftly as a gentle sparrow flies

I will visit you when slumber brings you dreams
I will sing for you the songs I use to sing
When you laugh I'll be the sparkle in your eyes
Just as swiftly as a gentle sparrow flies

Please don't mourn for I am in a wondrous place
Full of peace and love and God's amazing grace
And the words you speak to me always arrive
Just as swiftly as a gentle sparrow flies
