Latter-day Prophet President Hinckley

For most that read this site, you are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For those that aren't, we believe in a living prophet still being on the earth (like Noah). Our prophet for most of my young adult life 'til now passed on Sunday. With his funeral on us I thought I would post a poem i got from my sister in law and say that he will be missed. he was an inspiration and made me feel it was ok to mess up and try again, as long as i tried!

Prophetic Passing
I imagine he's running to Marjorie now,
Yes, running, not waving his cane.
I see him embracing his father and mother
While they keep repeating his name.

I see him now meeting his forebears,
Brother Brigham and Joseph are there.
Sweet reunion of prophets, united by service
That only such noble men share.

I see him embraced by the Savior
While Father says, "Good and well done.
So faithful in stalwart endurance, I welcome
My noble, most excellent son.

"I then hear the ripples of laughter
As he says the reception's just fine,
But he hopes that he'll get an assignment or two
Since there's no need to waste any time.

I can hear his clear voice in the stillness
At the close of this sweet Sabbath day,
Have faith and move forward there's work to be done.
President Hinckley would want it that way.

So I spent half the day trying to find the song and then did'nt like it once I put it on my blog because I kept singing along with it instead of focusing on what I was posting! I'm a little cukoo! Love ya! You love my guts?

What a perfect poem. Thank you for posting this. The funeral and coverage was so incredible, wasn't it. I sure made me grateful.

I'm glad you stay in touch with my kids through blogging and church. You've always been one of my favorite girls. ~Sister Jones
