I want to believe


I want to believe in heaven there is a place
More comforting than a mothers heart
I want to believe there is a secure embrace
For all, when it becomes our time to part

I want to believe eternal peace, exists there
How one arrives has no consequence
I want to believe it’s full of love and care
Passing through a gate with no fence

I want to believe souls are free to roam
And warm precious smiles abound
I want believe it’s a familiar home
Everyone with friends and family around

I want to believe no one feels alone
Always there’s music and dance
I want to believe angels have flown
And all there will get that chance

I want to believe until my time comes
A divine power will be watching above
I want to believe the same for everyone
Never a soul should be without love
A beloved friend or family member gone
I believe always a family’s love goes on

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
