THE BRIDE OF THE LAMB - I wrote this poem as a tribute to my beloved sister Sandra who showed us how to live and to die. She will be remembered as one who lived her life with grace and courage and above all selfless love. She left to be with God on 03 April 2010 (Holy Saturday)


The Lord has turned my mourning into dancing,
He carried me from darkness into light,
Joy rode the dawn and on that glorious morning,
The Lamb appeared to claim me for His bride.

I have forgotten all my days of sorrow,
My bed in which my body racked with pain,
The painful agony of my life’s ended,
Faith and hope’s consumed but love remains.

The cross that Jesus Christ placed on my shoulder,
Hewn from the one He bore at Calvary,
Would often seem too great for me to carry,
Had He not walked each painful step with me.

My agony a prayer, my tears a blessing,
I offered all for you that you may be,
Some day with me and one in Christ united
In love and joy and peace eternally.

Myra D’Souza – 13th April 2010

  3. Well done Sis - I am pretty sure you have been inspired by the Holy Spirit as I know now that this is what our Sandy was trying to tell us on Good Friday.

    I loved the last verse!

  4. Tears fill my eyes and my mind is numb with grief. Some day I shall smile knowing that I had Sandy for 30 years,
