Waiting At Heaven's Door - Poem by Sandra Finch

When I die, my love, sing no sad songs for me.
Take my ashes to the shore, let them drift across the sea.

Smile and be happy, remember me with a love song.
Live your life to its fullest, sadness and grief would be wrong.

Now that I've gone, my spirit has been set free.
Everywhere you look, my love, you will see me.

You'll see me in the rain as it gently falls to the ground.
You'll see me in the blooms that grow, silently without a sound.

You'll see me in the hummingbird that flits from bloom to bloom.
Remember all the good, my love, and you'll have no sadness or gloom.

When I die, my love, free my spirit at the shore.
Sing only love songs for me, I'll be waiting at Heaven's door.

Be happy, my love, I'll be waiting for your spirit to be set free.
I'll be waiting at Heaven's door, for you to be forever with me.
