Juliet said, “Parting is such sweet sorrow”
We know how her story ended
Our time apart offered no sweetness
Only feelings of sorrow and emptiness

Emotions of regret and joy battle for victory
As I ponder the storms of our relational history
Regret is pinned downed conceding defeat
Present joy has rendered past sins obsolete

Elated to set my eyes upon you
No sadness, only hope renewed
Excitement fills me from the core to the bone
As I open my mouth declaring, “Welcome Home!”

Inspiration: This poetic piece describes the joy at a long awaited reunion. Based upon the story of the Prodigal Son found in Luke 15:11-24 – “And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.” ~TRP~

Jesus gave His life for our sins.
Why don’t you open your heart,
Let Him in?
He paid such a price
So that you and I might have life.
Jesus paid it all on Calvary.

Death has no victory.
The grave has lost its sting.
Because of Him, we now can sing.
We can sing, shout for joy.
We’ll be with Jesus forevermore.
Oh Jesus paid it all on Calvary.

“I go to prepare a place just for you.
Trust in Me and My word,
I’m coming back real soon.
No more sorrow, No more pain.
You’ll never hunger or thirst again.
Oh, I paid it all on Calvary!”

Inspiration: Poem inspired by the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on Calvary for the salvation of the world. ~TRP~
