In The Scheme of Things

In the scheme of things, I want to go in reverse to make this have a better outcome but

This was not my plan so… let the healing begin with feel good remarks, soul-stirring singing and powerful preaching yet…

In the scheme of things we wonder if there was anything else we could have said or done but

This was not our plan so… we remember what was:

You: teaching me how to climb a tree when I would have rather been playing with dolls.

Me: chasing you, after you teased, pulled my hair or said something mean, but I was too prissy to run through the yard. So you would always get away.

You: bending my spoon backward telling me you wanted to give me something to remember you by at that party. Sho’ wish I had that stupid spoon now.

You: texting or facebooking me just to say hello, You: proudly boasting about your kids and grandkids, You: always wanting to do better, and be who you dreamed to be.

You: never ever forgetting to say I love you.

In the scheme of things we wish we hadn’t taken your life for granted but

We don’t know the ultimate plan so… we look to the heavens and thank the Lord that you… were a bigger part of the scheme of things.

Rest in Peace Kevin
