STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

Now my tendrilled soul,
Has found its pergola-- Christ--
To wind its way up....

LOST

Sitting quietly beneath the old blue gum tree Flowers surround me lined in neat rows on the lawn White and blue, tall and short placed as if by gods’ decree My eyes mist, oh god what she had undergone Her face clouded in pain, body still as a frightened fawn The room white, Spartan white sheets drape the bed Her raven black hair no more, so much left unsaid Eyes of fierce emerald green now dull and sedate God let fall tears the day her mortal coil she did shed Soon again in each others arms, standing at heaven’s gate

Your Sacred Soul Still Calms And Comforts Me



Ave-Maria hymns lift you in flight to Heaven’s gate apt angel does ascend and follows lantern's light predawn of night on star-dust wings for spirit a Godsend. On April morn in skies of blue as you besprinkled crystals from your seraph’s wings, by mourning noon soft snowfall does ensue a smoothing swaddle soothing harmed heartstrings. In diamond-dusted frosted filigree so sparkles soulful kisses you bestow for scintillant reflective reverie your glistened gift you send in silvern snow. Beloved mother, sainted entity you hush my cries with snow’s serenity. Susan Ashley December 8, 2017

Heaven Took You Away

Scent Heaven took you away
I've asked GOD, every single day, 
to send you back to me, helplessly I pray. 
I am so heartbroken, hopelessly going through the motions of my life. 
Angrily denying that Heaven took you from me, Heaven took my Daddy away. 
Now that your gone, it's so hard to carry on. Eleven years now it's been, it doesn't seem that long ago. No one knows what this loss has done to me, I am not alive sometimes it seems. I'm a ghost to those around me
desperately I struggle just to get through each day, ever since Heaven took you away.

The Fighter

As beams through blinds half-open softly play
on mottled skin, and helpless, she depends
on doctors and on nurses, none allay
her growing agony that never ends.
 
Her dread is looming larger. She can’t rest!
She clings to life and ponders soberly
the reasons for and answers to this test.
There has to be some recourse she can’t see
beyond what they’ve endeavored yet to do!
What lesson has she not already learned
with all the many hardships she’s gone through?

She prays to have this last page left unturned,
but then that page is lifted, for that night
a breeze blows in  -  Her soul to God takes flight.

Death

Marks the end of life—
Transformation now begins.
The soul exits the Earth’s plane . . . 
	     A new journey’s underway . . . 
Heaven’s the destination!

The Final Dance

The Final Dance

Death is that final dance we face in life,
He comes for us whether one’s young or old,
Courage is the answer to this sad strife,
Which means fear not this specter—be ye bold!
And prepare now your soul as God has told;
Death appears dark as Heaven’s light shines bright;
Angels bear ye now so true in God’s light!

Heaven Just Could Not Wait

Mommy, Why do you cry?
Daddy, Why weep?
The angels up here.
Are so loving and sweet.
What a beautiful place,
No sadness or fears.
And whatever you ask,
God always hears.

His love surrounds me,
I am not alone.
I am comforted and loved,
I am happy at home.
So, here for you,
I'll patiently abide.
Keeping our mansion ready,
Warm and cozy inside.

I'm very close by,
And in your hearts I will stay.
I'm not really gone,
I'm just a heartbeat away.
The angels were singing,
As they opened the gates.
As you see, for me,
Heaven just could not wait.

Olivia

O-n this Easter day God took you up to heaven.
L-ong days and nights followed, especially for your mummy who misses you with an
I-tensity that only a mother can. A
V-acant hole in her heart, forever longing for you.
I-nvisible threads of love will always bind you together, you are mummy's
A-ngel, who is always with her.


Remembering my niece Olivia who left this world twenty two years ago, aged three months.

Patriot Guard funeral Escort

Patriot Guard funeral Escort
Loch David Crane
August, 2008

Today is sunny: with three dozen bikes,
some decorated cars,  a pair of trikes,
two dozen Marines: all of the family
and toddlers to set their Daddy free
into the Great Beyond beyond the sky
where loved ones send their veterans who die.
Below our feet the stones give way to grass
where they are neatly trimmed; and as we pass
the names of strangers stare into the air
and we look back, wondering who lies there.
I won't step on a grave--I'll walk around
so not to insult those within the ground.
	We ride at funerals honoring those vets,
	brave men and women we have never met.

                                       Grief can swallow you
                               Soft tears of love from your heart
                                          Memories to keep
                                 Pearl drops falling from the sky
                                         Eternity has no end

Linda-Marie, my sweet family

Forever my BFF

Your heart
Your smiles
You cared, when others wouldn't 

You are one of a kind,
No one here will ever come close, to the beauty from your heart
Linda my bff, I miss you, and I wish you were here
You made this place a better place
You made this place shine

One day my friend, I will see you and again, 
In a place, where you are the Angel
Welcoming me' for a second time, 
Holding the door to another home, as you did here on the soup.

I love you my BFF Linda-Marie.

God

I gazed upon your face, oh Lord
And the fires of hell extinguished their sting and wept for mercy.

I heard your voice call me, oh Lord
And the army of heaven carried me away.

I felt your love touch me, oh Lord
And i knew i was home.

I am this Earth and Heaven above.
I have not forsaken you as you have not forsaken me.

Heaven Now Has the Rest

HEAVEN NOW HAS THE REST

It’s been so long 
Since my eyes have seen your face
There’s still days I wish you were here so I could tell you
Everything going right or wrong.

Your smile was the moon in my sky at night
And your laughter was my stars;
You are still in my heart
You will always be its light.

Even after all these years
I wonder how you would be
If you were here,
Some days there are still tears.

Heaven has the best
For now you have wings;
We lived a few years here in this life,
Heaven now has the rest.

Soul Essence

Soul Essence

Release comes with death.
The mortal host is no more.

A faint and sad cackle is heard,
As all illusions come to an end.

The bare body lies in a stiff repose.
What once was, is now no more.

Tears are shed in a mortal milieu,
As the soul begins its ascension.

The flowers in decoration serve
As a human memory of the past. 

Tender emotions now permeate the air,
As the flowers’ sweet smell is realized.

The moon shines bright in the dark sky,
As the soul now meets its cosmic destiny.

Bliss

Do not stand
At my grave and cry 

I’m no longer there
But in the sky

My body is restful
And my mind is a drift

The thought of a heaven 
Is all but a bliss

I’m lost in the sunlight
I’m playing in the grass

And I realize heaven 
Is earth at our last

So do not stand
At my grave and cry
I am not there
I did not die…

THE GREAT SURPRISE








What a great surprise for us all would be 

When death the mighty we manage to see

And as soon ourselves into death's arms throw

Realize we don't end there but still grow!

need

do you cry in heaven, love
because you miss me so
or are you filled with happiness
because of what you know

for on earth i suffer, love
i've tears that kiss my face
i come home to an empty room
and loneliness' embrace

do you come to visit me
and kiss me as i sleep
and place your arms around me, love
to comfort as i weep

will i know the answers to
these questions i have posed
yes, only when we meet again
my love, my life, my rose

Angel Returned to Heaven

An angel returned to heaven today
deployed to erase gluttonous hate
from envy's grasp love is pulled away

To bring order to disarray
supplying hope while replacing sloth 
An angel returned to heaven today

Armed with beauty, charm and compassion
pride is now faced with a trained assassin
whether with song, a smile, a shoulder or ear
greed, anger and lust is sent running in fear

An angel returned to heaven today
after years of service in the field
from the mission never did she stray

In our hearts she will forever stay
so, let us remember, let us rejoice
cause our angel returned to heaven on this day

We Forget Eternity

We forget eternity and languish in fear,
drop into despondency, break off hope
and forget the light, forget the joy
a free soul flies to when free of sickness
and fear and hatred and most of all,
when free of death's lonely touch. 

If we could see, really, really see-- then
we would see this life as a moment, a
single dream forgotten on awakening,
till we fall asleep again and dream,
dream once more...and for those who
shake the darkness from their souls,
bathe in the luxurious light of eternity,
their dreaming will be done and they
will have awakened for evermore....

Heaven Is Where We Shall Be

Our love is true.
Our lives are through.
Now I am with you.
Now I can hold you.

My love for you
Had always knew
Here is where we'll be anew.

Our love was true.
Our lives are through.	
Now you are with me,
Now you are all I see.

Your love for me
Filled me with glee.
Paradise our home to be.

Our love so true,
Our lives continue on through.
Now I embrace you,
Now I am filled with grace.

His love for you and I
Has given us wings to fly
Through His Kingdom's sky.

Our love is true.
Our lives are through.
Now we thrive in eternal sleep,
Now we're alive, Heaven ours to keep.

The End



We watched your candle of life flicker and glow But now we have realised that soon you will go Your loving smiles we will miss. You had hung on to life throughout this dark night But now you are fading and so is your light No more warm hugs or a kiss. We heard a gasp as you drew your final breath Then your candle went out and we mourned your death Now you're in heavenly bliss.

Silent Spirit Soul Surrenders Soars to Heaven-

Discerning knowing ongoing boring destitute high-minded absolute confined it in resolve End bizarre I close my open eyes to see the inside of me as I am relieved of my spirit my soul surrenders and I fly like a dove toward the skies I'm enhanced I am no longer in a trance not Beyond belonging to myself I take on a second breath not I relinquish I passed the test I am solemn
