Beyond

Rating: 3.1

It seemeth such a little way to me
Across to that strange country – the Beyond;
And yet, not strange, for it has grown to be
The home of those whom I am so fond,
They make it seem familiar and most dear,
As journeying friends bring distant regions near.

So close it lies, that when my sight is clear
I think I almost see the gleaming strand.
I know I feel those who have gone from here

Come near enough sometimes, to touch my hand.

Reconciled with lost loved ones so beautifully crafted and presented. A light at the end of life's tunnel.

I am long-time fan of Ella Wheeler Wilcox and although I have several of her books of poetry, this one called, 'Beyond' is one I've not seen before. It is a very touching poem, I'm so glad to have found it.
