The Death of a Loved One

After experiencing the death of a loved one I feel empty, lonely and sad
But yet I know that my loved one is finally at peace resting eternally with the Creator
The Creator gives life and the Creator takes it back
So I'm forever thankful for the time we were allowed to share together
Life is but a mirror, you smile and you get a smile back
But frown at life and you will get a frown in return
I don't know when it will be my time to go back to the essence
That's why I live in a constant state of gratitude
