Those pearly gates

                                    THOSE PEARLY GATES
08/28/11             .
                  "True love can last a lifetime, but only if you forget to love"
                        The pearly gates of heaven is where you walked through.
                        The love we had for each other was everything we knew.
                                   Now that your gone I won't know what to do.
                                       My love for you is why I'll always be true.

                                      Cause you went first please say you'll wait.
                                 And together we'll walk through the pearly gates.

                          We've crossed alot of bridges and walked so many miles.
                           Now that your gone I'm not sure if I can stand the trials.

                                For me to hold you in my lovin arms just once more.
                                   When you were taken I was broken to the core.

                                       Cause you went first please say you'll wait.
                                 And together we'll walk through the pearly gates.

                                Layed on our bed I slept on the left you on the right.
                                     I smell your sweet scent in your pillow at night.

                                          I miss you my darlin I'll never love again.
                                       You are my only love I'll love you till the end.

                                         Cause you went first please say you'll wait.
                                    And together we'll walk through the pearly gates.

                                          I finally fell asleep with you on my mind.
                                           Why darlin did I have to stay behind.

                                               I'm left with nothing but my memories.
                                                    Our love our life was our destiny.

                                              Cause you went first please say you'll wait.
                                         Then together we'll walk through the pearly gates.
                                                 Teresa Skyles
