    This was for my wife, Angelisa, who God suddenly took home on June 24th, 2010...It took me this long to share...

    When God gave me you
    my life became complete
    my heart beat stronger
    my vision is clearer

    I would write of life, love, and peace
    I could speak of hope, joy and pain
    but never did I realize the things I share with others
    would be seeds planted in the blessing of you;

    I awaited on the road forever
    looking at the many pass me by
    searching for the piece of me
    that I could recognize blindly;

    I sought you in my dreams
    I asked for you in my prayers
    I looked for you in my worship
    and now the God gave me you
    I thank Him in my praise;

    I cry without reason, smile without
    purpose and sing without music in
    the midst of a crowd and people look
    to know that love is with me;

    I want to hold you forever,
    smile with you infinitely,
    walk with you until the days
    no longer separate from night,

    and when the sands become soft
    I will carry you in arms built for you;

    On bent knee I waited with one arm
    lifted high to hold commitment, peace,
    devotion, joy, trust, love, happiness,
    and communication wrapped in God’s anointing;

    Look to the sky?
    Can you see the clouds forming our shape
    as GOD smiles upon the completion of HIS request?
    And now, as I lift you up to hold His hand
    I smile to know that, one day, you will reach down for me...

    I love you, I miss you and I thank God for your life…7 years was not enough...Derrick

    And with this, may she rest in perfect peace.

    Be strong my brother, and smile so that she need not worry for you.
