My Precious Friends
Where have you gone?
The Pearly Gates, you Say?
Dancing with the Angels at Bay?
Smiling at the clouds as you Lay?
“Where I have gone I am not so small.
My soul is as wide as the world is tall.
I have gone to answer the call, the call
Of the One who takes care of us all.
Wherever you look, you will find me there-
Dancing on the dance floor,
Greeting you at the door.
Washing your hair at the shop
Teaching you how to dance the bop
Behind the camera watching you pose
Or I just may be in the heart of a beautiful red rose!
I am on butterflies' wings, on wings of my own,
To you, I may be gone,
But I’m not alone-
I am home!
“I knew God saw that you were getting tired,
A cure was not to be.
So He put His loving arms around you
and whispered, " Come with Me."
With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer,
And prayed for there to be a way.
Although we love you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hardworking hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes "the best".
My Dear Friends, if tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
Where have you gone?
We can all rest in peace now
Our Friends have gone home!
WE MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH! I LOVE YOU ALL AND UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!
