Reunited At Paradise Gate

Reunited At Paradise Gate Hands of leather hold crying child gentle touch, soothing , O' so mild Widowed mother , hard life going past food and water gone, can not last War and famine take a heavy toll on frail mother and very young soul Flown past are the blasts of guns fields rot with so many dead sons Hands of leather losing tender grip another soul sent on heavenly trip Crying child sleeps in peaceful calm no more murders, bullets and bombs Two hearts reunite at Paradise gate early demise , victims of wartime fate!

Meeting in Heaven will undoubtedly happen for millions of war victims. So many innocent women and children have been victims it is mind boggling!
