JUSTIN JENNINGS, June 25, 2017
I miss you
And your sure and gentle presence
I miss you
And your quick and beautiful smile
I miss you
And the way we all got together to be with you.

I hate cancer
And all the terrible things it did to you
I hate cancer
And the unknown fears that filled those days
I hate cancer
For all the things you never got to do.

I am grateful
For the miracle of knowing you
I am grateful
For the seeds of life you planted
I am grateful
That you never stopped living and believing.

I am blessed
Because I was welcomed by you as a friend
I am blessed
As I see your smile in the beauty that never dies
I am blessed
And I still hear you sing, “Don’t worry, be happy!”

I am
Blessed
For, in you, I was given a glimpse of all that is precious and good.

I am
Blessed…

And you are
the Blessing.
