a better place


All the tears that I have shed , and all the blood that I have bled
Cannot compare to what lies ahead
My soul mate , the love of my life is going to a place in paradise.
She says the gates have opened wide for her “ to go inside “.
Family and friends have gathered around for she is heaven bound.
The pathway is lit up with lights so bright , and all the
Angels in plain sight.
“ Swing Low , Sweet Chariot “being sung by a choir
Burning in her heart like a fire .
Her eyes are glassy and she has a smile on her face
Telling me she’s going to a better place.
For me not to cry, not to shed a tear for in my
Heart she’ll always be there.
I held her in my arms till her last breath , and now
I must lay her to rest.
I know I’ll follow you thru heavens gate
So wait for me – I won’t be late.
