The Eagle

on a frigid February morn
a bald eagle above did soar
a day in which we did celebrate
the life of a man who was great

people came from far and wide
for a man who stayed at the side
of those he cared and loved so dear
and that is why we are here

the next day we gather again
this time it is the end
the time in which we say goodbye
in our grief we sigh and cry

as we head to the grave side
we look up to the cloudy sky
and in the sky soaring above
is the eagle with the heart of a dove

a reminder of this special man
who was a father, son, and friend
a firefighter to the core
that is why the eagle soared

so as we said our last goodbyes
we kept our eyes to the skies
the eagle brought us hope and peace
even though his life did cease

and so we continue with our day
and for the family we pray
that comfort from the Lord above
shall remind them of His love

~ Isaiah 40:28-31 ~
Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understand is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.

I will miss you, Mr Schairer! I'm so thankful I got to meet you! <3
