The Honored Guest

The Honored Guest

A family gathering...all efforts the best...
this celebration is not like the rest.
Do not sadden yourselves for what cannot be...
this empty chair is reserved just for me!

Traditions are priceless...
like each one of you.
We've shared many laughs...
and some saddened tears too.

But today is so special for each one of us...
as we gather together and make such a fuss.
You're feeling uncertain of how it will be...
for my absence is clearly what you all will see.

But...look at each other...through smiles and through tears...
and see me beside you...like all through these years.
Be sure..I am with you and always will be...
envision your memories of moments with me!

A part of me lives in each one of you...
a resemblance of looks..or an attitude too.
I shared myself with those I loved best...
and now live in heaven where God lets me rest.

I'll never leave you...you live in my heart,
and you'll never leave me...though we're apart.
I'm on a journey...simply went on ahead...
paving the path one day you'll each tread.

Think of me fondly and recall all the love...
as I recall the same...from the view up above.
My chair may seem empty...I'm simply at rest...
and will always remain as your “honored guest”!
