If wishing it could bring you back to me
Beside me here then you would surely stand
My heart would sing in three part harmony
If once again you graced my lonely land.

If wishing were the balm to heal this pain
At last my heart so light would sing a song
Of joy replacing sorrow's sad refrain
And dance a happy jig my whole life long.

But wishes can't do anything at all
And dreams, I know, can't change a single thing
Reality has cruely come to call
And missing you's the only song I sing.

At rainbow's end we'll meet again, I'm sure
That pot-O-gold that I am longing for.

For Mom and Dad, in memory.

Denise,
Simply beautiful!
A tear fell with the last lines.
How we miss our parents when they're gone!
I love this poem

Sometimes that ache inside cuts sharper than a sword my friend. Beautiful words and feeling for you. Love K.

And that will be a wonderful meeting. Just think of all the things you will have to tell them. Mother has been gone 8 years and there are still times when I momentarily think I'd like to tell Mother. Then reality sets in and I know it will have to wait.
Beautiful poem, Denise.

Thanks all for your warm, kind comments. Thanks, Nan for the pot-O-gold too!

You have all lifted my spirits a bit! Goodnight everybody! (I'm really tired)

Just inside Heaven's gates,
right at the rainbow's end ...
there are streets paved with gold,
lined with our loved ones
waiting for us to enter in.

There will be great celebration
when loved ones call our name.
We turn, we look ... and God says,
Welcome, we were waiting for you.
