Dreaming Towards Reality - Poem by Willem VanVoorthuysen

Beloved,
you are still so much here,

that in my dreams, I almost
feel your arms around me...

But, very soon you and I
shall r e a l l y stroll together,

the sun-kissed garden paths
of Paradise, to meet Christ,

eye-to-eye and hand-in-hand,
like when we were very young,

and love so new to us yet,
and death only a word...
