Packing

Submitted By: Princess_Erin_Jo

How do you pack up a life?
How do you say good-bye?
I thought I was strong
But now I just cry.
How do you pack up a life?
How do you put it away?
I thought I could do it
But I just canít today
How do you pack up a life?
How do you see it all end?
The children wonder
Why Iím crying again.
How do you pack up a life?
How do you box faded dreams?
I try to move on
But the sorrow still screams.
How do you pack up a life?
How do you find hope to go on?
My hope is in you, Father
Please help me be strong.
