A Funeral For A Pastor

the church that filled up over eight hundred seats
none of them were empty, for those who loved you
that's not the start of it, there were thousands more

your funeral was beautiful, as i thought before
singing, and speaking; of you Pastor Dan
the wonderful words spoken, in the song by Kenny
oh' how i love to hear him play and sing

and the words from the other four, speaking of your greatness
fire station six, was on the front row
holding my head high, i started to cry
you battled cancer almost a year, stage 4

they spoke of how you didn't know;
if God or the Devil was calling you to preach
Norman said, you'd be the first he'd reached

God called you, to be a powerful man
saving lives, of those miles away
someone called you, just to pray

you didn't mind, were you stood
if someone needed you, you was right there
Gods power, was there in your words

Flowers, of all sorts gathered around your coffin
the American flag laid on your resting place
for you told us, you wasn't afraid of DEATH

i wrote, "that death isn't the end,
but just the beginning of a new journey"
which is true, you walk on the clouds of blue

every time, i see a flower bloom; i think of you
life is beautiful, life is sweet
like that little flower down on my feet

before you, my days were dark and of gloom
no sun, in my skies only clouds of gray
you touched me, with words you once spoken

"if you saw two paintings..
one of a beautiful field of flowers on a sunny day
or one of a mother doe, and her fawn on a stormy
day which would be more beautiful to you?"

of course i said the painting with the fields
and you said, "no the one of the storm
because of the mother, protecting her young"

that was like an image, you showed me of God
he protects us all, on our stormy days
when no sunshine is around

when they rolled you away, i started to cry
seeing your wife, wipe her eyes

at the funeral, it was beautiful
men dressed, like from war
gave you a walk way, to your place

when Brian, read out the poem you wrote
of the days, you were poor, and she still didn't care
she made what yall had, into a home to share

the doves were set free, as they were meant to be
circled around, in the sunlight
they flew so high, and worry free

wish i could have been were they are
as they, sang the song, for you at your funeral
they started to cry, the firefighters let out a sigh

Pastor Dan, Rest in Peace, For your love will
Forever Stay

I've always wondered what would happen to my church if my pastor died... I guess it wouldn't be such a tragedy, but a beauty and a miracle that he was here. Very nicely put, Cherokee. This is a lovely poem.
