She Awaits Him

SHE AWAITS HIM

by Twinkle VanFleet

Heaven

AND HERE HER GROUND HAS COME TO OPEN,

LIKE ARMS SPREAD WIDE IN WELCOME-

PATIENTLY AWAITING HIS COMPANY ONCE SHARED,

SHE’S COME TO GUIDE HIM TO HEAVEN.

ONCE GATHERED ABOUT HER RESTING PLACE,

AND WISHING NEVERMORE-

NOW WE LAY HIM DOWN ATOP HER HEART.

WHERE NEW PAIN AND TEARDROPS POUR.

WHERE TIME HAS NAMED THEM RE-UNITED,

AND A CHILD’S HEART WILL WEEP IN SORROW-

WHERE ANOTHER DADDY IS LAID DOWN TO SLEEP,

AND HIS CHILDREN BEGIN TO FACE THEIR TOMORROW.

WHERE DAUGHTERS CRY AND SONS TOO WILL SHED HIS TEARS,

WHERE WE LAY DOWN OUR FATHERS-

AND LEARN TO COPE WITH OUR FEARS,

I STAND HERE BEFORE YOU- NOT A STRANGER TO THE LIGHT.

SEE YOU IN THE MORNING- SWEET DREAMS, GOODNIGHT.
