In memory of James L. Hawkins Jr. my son...
by Barbara Richardson on 12.15.08
To know him is to love him...
God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw James' tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, 'Peace be Thine'.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
I love you my son...
