Ode to my Cousin
Karen Ewing Coomber
by Arley Steinhour 111511

You are now there, with youth to spare,
Your lips Praising God, Pure Revival;
First thing that you, wanted to share,
'A hug from Jesus,' upon arrival.

In the time since then, we can only guess,
You ran a race, hugged a bee, climbed a tree,
Danced for Jesus, all Heaven to bless,
With your newfound, Healthy, Agility.

Your Crown, of Gold, and Precious Stone,
Sparkles from Light, of God on His Throne,
You chuckle at thoughts, of needing a phone,
To call family to say, 'They are, Not Alone.'

You've had no Pain, nor Cried no Tear,
Since receiving Jesus', Warm, Welcome Hug,
Sadness, no more, just, joyous Cheer,
You are Happy, as a 'Bug in a Rug.'

We know you are busy, with things there to do,
Reacquainting with ages of kin,
You leaving, reminds us of something so true,
Only in Jesus, can we be, with you, and with Him.

AMEN
