Butterfield, Derek Lance
His Journey Has Just Begun
Don’t think of him as gone away;
his journey’s just begun.
Life holds so many facets;
just think of him as resting on this earth
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today how nothing,
not even our sadness, can really go away.
Think of him as smiling down
and living in the hearts of those he touched
for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much.
