03/26/2005: "How Deep (dedicated to the victims of the Tsunami Tragedy)"
How deep was the wave, a daze of destruction, Tearing the soul, from it's earthly demise, With nary a warning, and nary a thought, Only fear in a moment for innocent eyes.
How deep was the ocean that carried them onward, An ocean of might, filled with holy remorse, God's angels were there, in the turbulent waters, Guiding them home as the storm held it's course.
How deep was the earth, and the sand that would smother, From where the tide left all it's scattered debris, As hope lost it's stronghold and life left it's borders, With families left grieving for those lost at sea.
How deep are the coffins, and some remain empty, Awaiting remains of those yet to be found, For earth is a blanket now, sheltering many, With water remaining on God's holy ground.
How deep are the scars that remain now forever, The why's and the how's will be asked without end, How could a good Lord send this wrath down upon them, Using forces of nature to shatter and rend.
How deep are the hearts that will now come together, To strengthen and build where destruction has torn, So deep are the numbers of God's blessed spirits, On earth as in heaven, they gather to mourn.
How deep are the numbers of angels in heaven, As deep are the numbers of angels on earth, Who will now sew the quilt of compassion and caring, As they sew will their blessings bring forth a rebirth.
How deep is God's love for when souls are brought home, They are comforted, shown they have not died in vain, For God's call is blessed, in mercy he holds them, In death there is life, and forsaken the pain.
How deep is the glory when lost is the hope, For in all of the hopelessness, God's light remains, The answers to why, will be shown as all cope, As the hearts of all people wash tragedy's stains.
How deep is the sorrow, in a wave of destruction, In the quakes of tomorrow, remember to give, For those who are sacrificed, and those who remain, There is a greater love waiting in heaven,... to live.
