A Place I Can Not See

A PLACE I CAN NOT SEE
Mother, Mother where can you be?
For not so long ago you left me for a place I can not see.
They say you walk on streets of gold,
And that you will never grow weary and old.
There is no pain nor sadness, you will never cry.
A place of health, you will never die.
Always brightness, always light
Never darkness, never night
Forever happy and always well
A place called heaven is where you dwell.
Our Creator you get to meet
As you sing praises and bow humbly at His feet.
Walking in gardens of beauty untold,
The magnificence of this kingdom your eyes behold.
The voice of Jesus you get to hear,
The shouting of angels as they cheer.
Above the stars in heaven you patiently wait
To see your Becky walk thru the Pearly Gates.
I do not know when this day will be
But some day this place I will finally see.
Mother and daughter for all eternity,
This place called heaven is where I will be.
