A dark stone grave,

Staring you cold in the face.

It reminds you of pain,

A most unfamiliar place.

-

Your friend has passed on,

And left you alone.

To face the troubles of the world,

All on your own.

-

You try to smile,

To hide the pain,

Soon you realize,

That it is in vain.

-

You need a higher help,

To see you through,

You go to the church,

And take a place in a pew.

-

You listen to the pastor,

As he preaches the Word,

You feel comfort,

In every verse you've heard.

-

Remember the love,

Remember the loss,

Combine it together,

And leave it on the cross.
