Though my heart is full of sadness,

I have thoughts of gladness too.

Two emotions, both from love,

and in my heart for you.


I’m sad that you have passed away,

but glad you’re pain is gone.

I’m sad because I’ll miss you so,

yet glad that you live on.


I’m sad that I’ll no longer see

that smile upon your face,

but glad to know that you are well,

and in a happy place.


As I think about the conflict,

I suddenly can see…

The happiness is all for you.

The sadness, all for me.
