When I'm Gone

When I am gone, and the next sunrise appears Know that within your heart, I am very near When the moon's glow, softly lights up the sky I will visit in your dreams, just close your eyes When the galaxy is full and you wish upon a star Know that in your thoughts, I am not very far When the rain softly falls, upon your cheek The words, I love you, each drop will speak Sitting in the silence, of your troubles and fear It will be my voice to comfort your ear When the wind gently blows, across your face Know it is my kiss, for you to embrace Search the clouds of each new day I will send a message of love your way When the waves crash, upon the shore It will be me, knocking, from Heaven's door When the seasons come, one by one I promise, to never, leave you alone Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall I will be with you, through them all With each season, much brought anew Warmth, changing of colors, snow and dew In each, I will be, for you to find If ever I should, cross your mind Let not one tear, fall from your eye As I promise, never to say good-bye Think not, we are separated, miles upon miles Alive in Christ, we will meet again, in a little while Written by: Donetta Harless Monday, August 8, 2016
