We Only Part To Meet Again (2)

Title Quote: John Gay

The very first time we had to depart
We don’t remember, but it’s deep in our heart
We left our true home up above
Coming to Earth to create joy and love

All too soon as a child we face the loss
Our parents leave us and we get cross
It’s a vital early lesson we learn then
We Only Part To Meet Again

As the years go by friendships do too
Some people have many, others a few
Romances are another tug at the heart
When often we have to be apart

Leaving our parents is a parting we make
It’s a difficult step for each side to take
Mothers especially feel the loss, but then
We Only Part To Meet Again

All these partings that through life go on
Show us that we can survive and be strong
Separating can hurt for a time, but we must
Let go and move on, in faith and trust

All of us one day will make the journey back
Leaving our bodies, no clothes to pack
They’ll be rejoicing from many in Heaven when
We Only Part To Meet Again
