When I Consider Thy Heavens

Memories of recent and past losses of loved ones

Hang on the wall of all our hearts.

Scenes from tragedies flash across our minds.

Scattered photos of children in a grade school.

Silent nights ring out from their bedroom walls.

The why’s and what for’s clutter our hearts.

Not knowing that those are not important thoughts.

Collages created on a facebook wall

As the news feed scrolls with “miss you’s”

Words posted on an earthly collage

Among the memories in our minds & hearts.

Knowing that an all-knowing God sees all

The collages throughout our land.

Another year draws to a close

As families gather ‘round the Christmas tree

One more chance to make a photo

To add to our living collage.

Though seared in our thoughts is one single collage

Fresh photos of children from a schoolyard

While others paste words drawn out from broken hearts

On the scrolling walls of loved ones remembered.
