Do Not Weep
Author: Tammy


God wrapped her in his loving arms
caressing away the pain.
Washing away the sorrow, and tears
making her whole again.

He gave her the most beautiful wings
an angel could ever own.
He took her to this heavenly place
this place she could call home.

He wrote her name upon the clouds
as she entered this paradise.
All her sadness had disappeared
and the grief left from her eyes.

Smiles, and laughter became her
for the troubles had come to pass.
And the fear went away
for she was home at last.

But then her heart felt heavy
her children she did not see.
Her beautiful face formed a frown,
and she didn't feel so happy.

She bent down, and started weeping
for the ones she left alone.
Leaving her husband, and children
to face this world on their own.

God softly whispered "Please do not weep"
I brought you here to rest.
Your life was full of sorrow, and pain
and my child you passed life's test.

Your pain was so unbearable
you laid in such despair.
So I wrapped you in my arms
just to bring you here.

Your life you lived the fullest
even though your days were few.
I watched you cry, and suffer
so my child I came for you.

Your family they do miss you
but in their hearts they smile.
Because now your free from pain,
and they know they will see you in time.

So my child do not weep
for your loved ones are ever near.
Smile and laugh, your sorrows are gone
and soon your family will join you here.
