You should be full of sadness because its time for you to go
But in your eyes there's gladness...I wonder what you know?

I'm working out the answer that's written all over your face
I think you know you're going to a very special place

Parting will be such sorrow and tinged with much regret
But mellowed by the knowledge, that you're not quite finished yet!

For youíre making me believe that this is not the end,
but just part of the journey to a new home 'round the bend

Even though I won't be with you and I can't show you I care,
others who have loved you will be waiting for you there

I know you'll feel right at home the way you always do
So when itís time and my turn to go, youíll be waiting for me too

I used to wonder why Iím waiting, but now I no longer guess
The angels had to let me know your forwarding address

Happy trails, Bucko!

Oh Bluesy,
This is wonderful! How special! I can see this on a calendar from a Funeral home or on a wall in Cardiac Rehab. You display your faith in subtle but consistent ways that become you. ~L

You wear your faith proudly, and although some might ridicule, I am certainly not one of those. I am not "of the faith," and I have been ridiculed for that. Maybe people like us can learn from each other.

To have one's faith ridiculed is a blessing, Jerry.
Thanks so much for your comments.
