Jesus Will Help You Live Again

Jesus Will Help You Live Again

Back during the newlywed days,
We lived life for the now.
And late nights during our pillow talk
Shared future hopes and dreams.

Love filled our talks about tomorrows,
No idea of the griefs and sorrows
Of  a one-day destiny in the ensuing decades
And the reality of what ’til death do us part means.

Without Jesus as Savior
How do people face tomorrow
With the tears, they’ll be crying
Because their spouse is dying.
Jesus will mend your broken heart
And will help you live again.

In empty rooms,
You feel the gloom
Where love and laughter
Once filled the day.

Photo albums chronicle
Where together you’ve been
Telling the story in pictures
Of the life lived intertwined.

Without Jesus as Savior
How do people face tomorrow
With the tears, they’ll be crying
Because their spouse is dying.
Jesus will mend your broken heart
And will help you live again.

I wrote this with my wife in the hospital ICU awaiting movement to in-patient hospice care. My heart is still breaking. My tears still flowing. I know Jesus will mend my broken heart and help me live again. My wife would pass away twenty-one days later on April 12, 2018. The cause of her death was Melanoma Cancer and the recurrence of a Melanoma Cancer brain tumor that had previously been removed.
