Beyond The Rainbow
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth was soon to fade.
I saw a wondrous image of a place that’s trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful — lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you that I’m well,
That this place is truly wonderful, a happy place to dwell.
That your heart shouldn’t ache so… the pain should go away.
I’ll wait for you in comfort ’til you come for me some day.
That although we’re not together in the way we used to be,
We’re still connected by a bond no eye can ever see.
That when you need to find me, we’re never far apart.
Just look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
