Sad & Glad

Slipping Away

Smile

  Goodbye family and friends. My soul has taken flight. I’m entering the spirit world and, oh what a beautiful sight.   Had I but imagined the beauty and love that is here, I would have came more willingly, and of death I’d have no fear.   Happiness surrounds me. Such...

Somewhere

The Dash Between

The Departed Ship

Thou Art God

Too Late

  You walked slowly to my casket
 and looked down with saddened eyes.
 The words of love you whispered
 really took me by surprise.   I didn’t know you felt about me

Troubled Heart
