Heaven Waiting

Will you wait for me, dear, until tomorrow? When my time has passed Along with my sorrow I'll wait for you, beside the sea Where I hope to find you Waiting for me I'll love you until the stones become dust Til' the sea is forgotten By the earth's dying crust I'll love you long after, each of the sands Is counted and lost by My longing hands I'll hold you until, my strength is no longer Then bitterly wish For a strength so much stronger I'll hold you after, forever has faded A forever that for you I would have traded I miss you my dear My love, my daughter And words cannot grasp the ache of this father I miss you my dear Oh my love, my daughter * For every father who has had to lose his little girl. Dedicated to the memory of Elly Jane Smith and Gena Grahm

Your beautiful tribute to your daughter brought tears to my eyes. I lost my son two months ago and I am still grieving and unable to write poetry. My last son is in the hospital after having a stroke caused by an aneurysm very much like my younger son. I am praying he survives. I am very sorry for your loss. Blessings

A sad thing indeed. We are not supposed to have to go through this in our lives. Sadness is pervasive in our lives, but this is beyond and brings tears to my eyes.

Excellent writing and very touching lines, very lyrical and poetic with scenes ably painted by your words. Perfect arrangement and smooth flow, even more perfect title and a moving truly profound message. So much depth and wisdom.

Caleb,I looked to see if maybe they were children in the news who had been killed or abducted? Or maybe they are just two girls that moved away from their dad. This is so nice a poem!! I guess the abduction thing is on my mind because a girl at our school, young and beautiful went missing and it's been over a week now. I fear the worst has happened to her. It's all over the news. Please pray for Elizabeth Laguna.
