Walking Here With You



Tell me about Heaven,
you asked me in my dream,
your eyes and smile so kind.

With such relief I nestled in your arms,
so long have I been alone,
and without comfort.

Heaven.....
some would say celestial music,
glorious colors, perfect peace,
streets of gold,
beauty, happiness and song.....

Angel choirs, drifting on a cloud,
wings, palaces and puppies,
dancing among the stars with
 one hundred golden moons.

But, for me,
Heaven would be
simply walking here,
with you.

  1. Heaven certainly does mean different things to different people - I like your conception of it very much: a special place and a loved one seem perfection.

  12. Heavenly bliss is quite subjective, eh? We all have our own different versions of heaven. Beautifully penned. Love the imagery here. :)

  13. Sherry, I have not been around much, bad on me. But this poem, lady, you had me in tears. All I could think of was my mother, who visited me in a dream the other night. I told her I knew it was a dream, but it was still nice to share a cup of coffee and talk about nothing in particular. WAAAAAAH! I miss Mom.

    Your musings on what the afterlife would be like are all great, because everyone who believes in same pictures it differently. I do believe there is something beyond, but it's connected to us with a thin membrane in between. Otherwise, how could I hear my mom call me occasionally, "Aaaaaa-merrrr!" Love, Amy
