Poem for Lola Natz
I thank the Lord for the chance
of saying I love you for the last time
I heard your reassuring voice
That everything will be fine.
As I learn of your passing, Lola Natz who is so dear,
I grieve for your loss.
And I sob. It is so much to endure…
Eventually, I make peace of myself
that you are truly gone and will never return.
I know you are happy now
with the Lord in his arms.
