Water, Blood & Oil

William sweet and holy

Posted in Uncategorized by Tod Robbins on February 8, 2010

A poem for my grandfather who recently passed away due to a severe stroke:

______________________________________________________

Mighty, great, and noble

William sweet and holy

laid his head so fully

in the arms of Anna’s rest.

Suckled, sighed, then opened

he received the love of parents humbly

who spoke his name like angels roaming

ever seeking the face of God.

Now he sleeps in death’s embrace

until the Son’s rising from east and west

when Wasatch gleaming,

Madison streaming,

and Provo seething with light

enter the kingdom of heaven.
