Grief and Loss

Let Her Rest

Let her rest
You are alive
Yet in a grave you stay

Let her rest
She feels no ill
It’s peaceful where she lay

Let her rest
You wrestle and writhe
But best to let it be

Let her rest
You know her well
Far more than memory

Let her rest
Don’t worry now
Let her go beyond

Let her rest
She did her job
and now she has gone on

Let her rest
While she was her
You, must be you

Let her rest
While you still wait
For now her wait is through

Let her rest
She permisses you
A small grace, you could say

Let her rest
You are alive
Look upon today
