A Family Reunion


And as I approach
the light I pray my
FATHER
is there waiting for
me

As he extends his
hand
I will carry the load
moving on with him

We look toward the
silver sea
standing on the
crystal shore is my
MOTHER.

As we approach her
my family circle is
coming together

Reaching for us we
embrace
moving on we continue
toward the golden gate

There at the golden
gate waits my sweet
BROTHERS:
young and handsome
as they were in youth

My eyes fill with tears
I am overjoyed to see
them
they always took care
of sister

ANGELS
appear each carries
one of our little
BABIES
In life great our sorrow

I am thrilled to know
ANGELS
attended to them for
us
The circle is complete
a family reunion has
begun.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
