Meet Me There - Poem by Danny Speicher

My dear, I know that our time here is through
Oh, how I wish I could just change your mind
I have no choice but to let you leave me
And pray that someone better, you will find

Those conversations we once had each night
Have ended... May not ever come again
So, just in case I never hear your voice
I can't wait to see you when these days end

Oh, meet me there, across the Jordan
Where my arms can embrace you once again
Oh, meet me there, at the eastern gate of Zion
And you'll see where my heart has always been

What a wonderful day that day will be
When again I clearly hear that sweet voice
Oh, how I've missed hearing that precious sound
To hear it again makes my heart rejoice

Oh, meet me there, across the Jordan
Where my arms can embrace you once again
Oh, meet me there, at the eastern gate of Zion
And you'll see where my heart has always been

Live your life to the fullest, dear sweetheart
Don't leave any dream in the still of night
I'll see you soon, don't worry about me
Your future is standing before you bright

And, when, at last, you've followed every dream
Your face, peaceful, content, with death dew's gleam
Walk forward into magnificent beams
These years, they are much shorter than they seem

So, meet me there, across the Jordan
Where my arms can embrace you once again
Oh, meet me there, at the eastern gate of Zion
And you'll see where my heart has always been

I'll be standing there a smile on my face
You'll see where my heart has always been
Please meet me there, upon the streets of gold
Where my arms can embrace you once again
