I Cry For Me — In Honor of Joe Harrison and His Family

I cry for me. Many would say I cry for you, but I say I cry for me. I cry because even though your presence in my life was small, I will still miss you. I will miss your smile, your words, and the kindness that you showed me. I cry for me. I know it seems selfish in a way to say I cry for me, but how can I say I cry for you when I know where you are. I know you are heaven with no pain, no suffering, and no more of this broken world. You have entered into an eternal peace with the Father and Son. How can I say I cry for you when I feel joy for you. No, I cry for me. I cry because I will miss you and so will others. I cry for me because I can no longer see the smile on your face on Sunday morning or see you serve the Lord in His house. I cry for me because this is how I honor thee. I cry for me because God has given me a heart to cry. I feel no shame in saying I cry for me, but I also cry for the ones you have left behind. I let my heart feel their pain as they say goodbye. I cry for them and me.

In honor of Joe Harrison
