Messages From Heaven

For 47 years and 2 weeks
He was there by my side
Then the sad day came
When he up and died.

On my way home he was there
And as I turned onto the road to home
Garth Brooks began to sing "The River"
It's message was so profound.

Then at breakfasts some songs they'd play
Were messages to which I could relate
"Remember When," by Allen Jackson
And Garth Brook's song "The Dance"

Rascal Flats song "The Long Lonesome Road"
Could have been his life,
It's message I first misread
Until I opened up my eyes.

With "If Tomorrow Never Comes,"
Garth Brooks breaks my heart
But with his song "Sometimes Other Than The Night"
The message was quite strong.

And then there were times I'd go to town
Where usually business was involved
One of these special songs would play
To let me know he was along.

I'd even turn from station to station
To keep the signal clear
And yes, You are right my friends
One of these special songs would be there.

Yesterday it was "The Dance"
Today I learned the news
The bank had presented the papers on the house
So they could be approved.

Today I learned it had been approved
And Our things we'll once more share
We'll look from our window
And see the buffalo there.

I sometimes wonder if there is a message
In a song Leanne Womack sings
It happens following stressful times
And it's called "I Hope You Dance."

OUR HOME ON THE RANGE, will be just that 
For now till the end of time
And I'll continue to read my books 
Sharing the life the cowboys had 
When the west was free and wild.

This morning when I was getting up I turned on the radio and Garth Brooks had just started singing "THE DANCE".

    one day i was listening toLionel Richie and i heard God backing up his promises with the words of the songs. it was so tender that i cried. i told the woman that i loved what happened but i did not tell her what i was praying for. but slowly God was answering my prayer. and He did and this week he confirmed it in his bible code that she would be my wife. you just don't know how much God loves me. john

    It's so nice to have something to turn to when someone dies and music can be so nice when they're singing lyrics that mean so much and that you understand. Such a nice poem.

    Cile I can almost picture him standing behind you his hands on your shoulder while you are sitting in your chair. You paint a picture of true and honest love. There is a song by Alan Jackson called "I want to stroll over heaven with you" . that I think is special just for you, God Bless you my friend, Ron
