GONE HOME

ON GOSSAMER WINGS A DEAR SOUL JOURNEYED TO ETERNITY
GONE HOME TO REST FROM LIFES WEARY BURDENS
SHE NOW RESIDES, AND BASKS IN THE WARM GLOW
OF PEACE AND HAPPINESS, FAR FROM PAIN AND STRIFE
HANDS THAT NO LONGER SHAKE NOW REACH OUT TO EMBRACE
LOVED ONES WAITING TO GREET AND WELCOME HER
WITH STEPS THAT NO LONGER FALTER
TOGETHER THEY SHALL STROLL THROUGH SCENTED GARDENS
OF BEAUTY AND LOVE
WHERE ROSES ALWAYS BLOOM AND NEVER LOSE THEIR HUE.
EYES NOW BRIGHT, SHINING IN THE LIGHT OF LOVE
SHE SEES THE GRIEF HER LEAVING CAUSES.
BUT HEAR HER….ON GENTLE BREEZES, SHE WHISPERS IN A VOICE
NOW STEADY, STRONG AND CLEAR
DON’T BE SAD DEAR ONES. I AM FARING WELL.
REJOICE FOR ME, I AM HAPPY, I HAVE COME HOME.
SHE SHALL NOT FORGET THOSE LEFT BEHIND
HER SOFT LIGHT GLOWS ALWAYS IN HEARTS AND MEMORIES,
GUIDING THE WAY THROUGH THE TRIALS
AND TROUBLES OF OUR LIVES
JUST CALL AND SHE WILL ANSWER.
SENDING STRENGTH AND COMFORT
MESSAGES DELIVERED ON WINGS OF BUTTERFLIES OF LOVE.
