Beautiful Place - Poem by shirley hedrick

I close my eyes and my thoughts wonder off to a special place
Theres men, women, even little children roaming about
No worries, pain, or sorrow in sight only joyful tears and laugther
As the clouds pass I stand in silence my head bowed
and hand on my heart
I hear the harps playing and the sweet angels singing
Oh what a beautiful place i.ve just been to.
