My Dream Vacation

Close your eyes my child and come along with me Place your head upon the pillow, rest and you will see You need not buy a ticket; no seat on a train There will not be a stewardess or pilot of a plane The journey is a swift one it commences as you sleep Take your mind and your heart to somewhere so, so deep The landscape is picturesque, vivid colors all around Green grass, pink magnolias, pebbles grey and brown The caretaker adorned in white carries a golden staff Silently motions us to follow with smiles and a laugh The gates are heavy metal, free standing in clouds of white Peace overcomes us there is no need for fright Two baby cherub angels help him to guide the way As they dance upon the clouds their little wings will sway Grandma approaches slowly, the same apron on her waist Grandpa hugs you tightly, time is short make haste As morning light approaches keep your eyes shut tight Reflect on all your family dear that you have seen this night Heaven is more beautiful than any place you’ve ever seen Visiting our loved ones there comes only in a dream
