Message from the Heart

One cold October evening we were sitting at your bed,
Conversing with friends, not knowing what was ahead.
We talked, laughed and reminisced, to relax away our fears,
We did what we’ve always done, throughout our many years.
It did my heart good my friend, to see your familiar smile,
A short time later you closed your eyes, to nap for a while.

One cold October evening, my thoughts went back in time,
From the day we met in 58’, to marriages yours and mine.
Together we did so many things, as best friends often do,
We played, partied, traveled, and shared many stories too.
Soon your will be walking, the stairs to heaven’s gate,
No worries my friend, we’ll meet again, and I will not be late.

One cold October evening, a shadow covered the sky,
As I peered out the window, a band of angels passed by.
I couldn’t help but notice, that they were not alone,
For I also saw a silhouette, perched upon a throne.
Ring, Ring went the phone, and in my heart I knew,
No one had to tell me, God sent the angels for you.
