Written for parents upon the loss of their son, David. David was a young physician and cancer surgeon who's life was consumed by the very disease he treated. 
Far above the obscure shore
the sky cast forth a “darkness visible”
that speaks your sadness forever more,
of a loss that’s ever so insensible.
But above these clouds where the sun beams glow
with no shadows to cast or eclipse,
my soul lives on; I feel no sorrow
for in my world, I still exist.
To those who love me, I feel your love.
There is no pain, I am at rest.
I have my peace in this heaven above,
and with your prayers I am forever blessed.
