I’m Okay

When words aren’t enough to express what you want to say.

Please understand I’m doing the best I can.  When I say I’m okay.

If there was something more I could’ve done or a price I could’ve paid,

To bring you back I would have, but I couldn’t,  So, I’m okay.

Although I don’t like it, I don’t want to be here like this today.

God thought it best for you to come unto Him and stay.

I’ll miss you my sweet angel, Ride your wings and fly away.

Because rest is yours, peace is yours and for that…   I’m okay.

Written by her Mother,

Kimberly D. Buie
