Treasure Island

Patricia Grantham

(May 27,1952 / Moncks Corner, South Carolina)

The Journey Home


As I traveled along the way
Met an Angel who began to say
Take my hand and follow me
Where I go you shall be free

I went and left it all behind
Saying goodbye to all mankind
Heaven's my home is where I'll be
A beautiful place it is to see

No more pain and no more sorrow
Never have to worry about tomorrow
Be happy always and rejoice with me
I've gone to live with Him eternally

    When an angel guides the destination is bound to be heaven: heaven like even on earth. The problem is that we are not blessed with such company. A lovely write envisioning blissful final abode. (Report) Reply

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
