Why oh why is it
The long departed
Visit us in our dreams?
Do the get lonely for us?
Do they miss the good times?
Do they try to correct a wrong?
Do they try to warn us?
DO they miss talking with us?
Mark Twain penned: “What a man mostly misses in heaven is company.”
Sounds legit don’t it?
Could heaven ever feel lonely?
Would we be sad and miss some body?
Oh, every tear will be wiped away!
Used to think ther’d be no tear spillage in heaven
There’s no promise of that anywhere
Just saying tears won’t be shed everywhere
Some one will be there to wipe them away
When the vastness of that place
Causes us to feel small
Some one will come to wipe our tears away
‘Cause heaven aint like here
Heaven is a place where we cry-
But in our weeping,we’ll not be alone
Here we run away to cry
Afraid to let anyone in
Here we cry in shame
We cry and cry and we still feel the same
There we cry
And some one will be there
In heaven our tears are collected
In heaven our tears count for prayers
In heaven not a single one of us is neglected…..
