Remembering Rev. Fr. Hugh A. Fonseca

He Only Takes The Best

My dear friend its soon to be two years that you left us for your heavenly abode. We miss you but knowing you we know that you are watching over us. While scanning for poems for the new academic year, I came across this and brought you to my mind. Not that we do not think of you, you are in our minds everyday, during our trials and troubles, and even during our joyful occasions.
A Tribute in words

God watched you as you suffered, and knew you had your share.
He gently closed your weary eyes, and took you in his care.
Your memory is our keepsake, with that we will never part.
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.
Nothing could be more beautiful, than the memories we have of you.
To us you were someone special. God must have thought so too.
All our lives we shall miss you, as the years come and go,
But in our hearts you will live forever. Because we love you so.
God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered “Come with me”
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer, and fade away.
Although we loved you dearly, you were not meant to stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best!
