He is still here

He is still here.

He had powerfully defined features and a strong heart.
He tried so hard to stay
Children, for all their worry and work, are a gift from God.
What else could you call someone
who fills your heart with such great joy?
How else can you define someone
who lifts your day with just a movement?
This gift is for a lifetime.
It lasts as long as it lasts.

"What is your life?
It is even vapor,
that appears for a little time,
and then vanishes away."

We have this gift for as long as we can hold it.
Then it drifts away.

Do not presume to tell me I don't know what I am talking about.
I have walked in those shoes.
I have stood under that cloud.
Look at me.
I am still here.

He is still here.
