Remembering Pa

This is the first morning we woke up after sending you off.
Walking along the street, Singapore seems different.

Singapore seems different without you.
Singapore looks empty without you.
Singapore sounds quiet without you.
Singapore feels strange without you.

You are one of the main reasons we came home to Singapore.
Now this reason is gone, and we are filled with a deep sense of loss.
Yet we are surrounded with the love and warmth of relatives and friends.

This city used to be your city.
The hustle and bustle of the city life hums on... but it is not the same without you.

Because we love, so we grieve.
For without love, there can be no grief.

We love you, pa.
We grieve, pa.
We take comfort that you are saved, safe in the tight embrace of our Lord Jesus.
We rejoice with the hope to be reunited together one day.
The day when God will wipe away all our tears, and there will be no more tears.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end."- Lamentations 3:22
