Don't Weep My Dear


Why are you weeping so my dear
Those pretty eyes are not meant for tears
Bring back the smile upon your face
For I am now in a nicer place
There is no pain I can feel
My life before seems so unreal
My soul is free to wander far
There are no closed doors, my way to bar
This peaceful realm, where there is no war
Just the love of those who went before
My ancestors who laughed and cried
Are here with me, where I now reside
So my love, please don't cry
For I know this is not goodbye
I know that we will meet again
And once more our love we will regain.

    God who made the lips to smile
    He also made those eyes to cry
    And being down here make it worth your while
    As time is something we can't buy....

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
