Grandma Killian's Poetry
On the back of the picture: Glen & Elva Killian -- Feb 4, 1979 "Golden Anniversary Open House" at their home in S.L.C. . . . to Stephen & Barbara from Grandma & Grandpa Killian.
Grandma Killian was actually a gifted poet. Over the years, on each birthday, or anniversary, or other special event, would come an original poem. I have in my hand a poem she sent each of the grandchildren a month or so before she died.
I AM NOT ALONE
The "Sea of Life" is never smooth;
Some days are fair --- some gray.
What e're my lot, my Savior guides;
He shows the way each day
When "Angry Billows" threaten
To destroy my very soul,
He quickly comes to comfort me ---
Steering from dangerous shoals.
When I make my "Last Voyage"
Upon this earthly sea,
He will be there! I know he will ----
My Pilot He will be.
And though I disappear from view,
I will never be alone;
My loved ones will be waiting there
In that "Eternal Home."
