Awaiting Eternal Life

sun’s bright light descends reviving a darkened Earth flowers bask outside her home angels come today her body lies still in bed the transition has been made palms wave in the breeze goodbye to a gentle soul who enters eternal life blooms droop in dismay knowing she will not be found only in heaven she reigns

    your worried about what people will see while your leaving. when you could be thinking about what angels will be doing when you get there. your father, your husband. the guy that drowned. good thing there is'nt marriage in heaven.

    Wow, what a beautiful, wonderful write you have written my friend! The greatest line that I've heard in a long time must be, "palms wave in the breeze" where I interpreted this to be even a mortal who has passed away gets attention from the breeze! Incredible line that one is! I thoroughly enjoyed your poem that I have read this evening! I just love your write a lot! Awesome Work!!

    By the doorway she stands and waves No greater place to lay her wings Then at his side No greater love to share then this With the friend with the golden hair. I am here for you Carolyn, may it ease your heart to know she is in her father's arms. xxxx
