Heaven Waits For Us Like Home - Poem by Alfred Barna

Although the sorrow has dried from my eyes
Daily your memories flow down inside
Many things you have taught me, have made me wise
Although some lessons have taken years to reach through my pride
I know that some where we will meet again
Because the longings run deep through my vein

Heaven waits for us like home
Taking us in from where we roam
Though, we get lost from time-to-time
Love and patience are what we find inside
Heaven wait for us like home

I wonder if I will match up to all the things you've done
You give more than love, though you struggled in the past
I know that this great journey we all have just begun
I hold onto your strength you had, hoping to make it last
It's not easy, like a child to walk without your hand
But we all must stand alone, for we all must make a stand

Heaven waits for us like home
Taking us in from where we roam
Though, we get lost from time-to-time
Love and patience are what we find inside
Heaven wait for us like home


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Went to visit Mom and Dad's plot, can't believe it's been 9 years...will miss them always. Until we meet again.
