Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Treasured
 

 




They filled each day with kindness
Never walked life's road alone
But the father called Elizabeth
To leave her earthly home



Now he wakens every morning
When the sky is tinged with dawn
With nights travail upon him
Cherished earthly treasure gone



She was his rock... his anchor
Safe passage from life's storm
For he found peace .. tranquility
In the comfort of her arms



Now the hoof of time beats heavy
For deaths wings have filled his cup
With a wine so dark and bitter
It is difficult to lift up


Still he lifts it high and deeply drinks
Shares with all who drink alone
As he longs for her and heaven
On this lonely road to home


In his path he sees the mountains
That loom so cold and tall
But he knows there is a rainbow
That leads behind them all


For he knows this cup of sorrow
He'll exchange for one of joy
When he finally meets Elizabeth
In that home beyond the sky



Where once more they'll blend their voices
In sweet harmony and song
And like two trees grow together
In that land beyond earth's dawn



Where they'll walk through valley lilies
Drink love's waters cool and sweet
Reunited with Elizabeth
His life.. once more complete

A loving dedication for my friend Bubby
