David told us not to cry.

Don't cry, my friends
by Charisma

David and friend meeting
Mom, niece Megan in
It's time my friends
I have to go
Angels will guide me
with peaceable light
Heaven is waiting
'twill be my new home
where I will find
rest for my soul

Don't cry my friends
'Cause this isn't the end
'twill be a new beginning
within promises of New Life

Don't cry my friends
Please let me go
Stairway to heaven
steer me above
where I'll find my rest
in Savior's Love

It's time my friends
Don't cry
It's time for me
to say Goodbye.

This verse was penned by a dear friend in the Netherlands. Her name is Trees A. Makakita-Poortman, she writes under the name Charisma. She has been very supportive during David's illness. She also made the background for this page. Thank you Charisma. To visit her website and read many beautiful poems by her (in three languages), click on her banner.
