Obituary for Robert J. Shoates

by Patricia Sanders-Hall©

I've found a new place where I can be free;
I've found a whole new beginning just made for me.
I know only peace and I never feel pain;
Days are full of sunshine and never the rain.
I'm no longer old, I've recovered my youth,
And all of my dreams have become my truth.
I can smile, I can laugh, I can walk, I can run;
I can hear every whisper, I can see past the sun.
My body is whole and my mind is so clear;
I know all of the answers and I'm freed from all fear.

I know why you mourn me, I see how you weep;
Your heart's full of aching from a love that was deep.
And I'm grateful for loved ones who hold me so dear,
But remember, I've found a better place here.
I will be there beside you, always nearby;
So don't mourn me for long, nor forever cry.
And whenever your sorrow bears down on your heart,
Think not of my life ending, but of this new start.
For on earth there's no joy that I'd ever see
To compare to the joy of my God smiling at me!
