Life is But a Stopping Place
Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road, to sweet eternity,
We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay. Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know. You are gone but never forgotten
And in your hearts, you will stay. We miss so much.
If Roses Grow In Heaven
If roses grown in heaven. Please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my brother’s arms and tell they’re from me.
Tell him that I love and miss him, and when he turns to smile.
Place a kiss upon his cheek and him for a while.
Because remembering him is easy, I do it every day.
But there is an ache within my heart that will never go away
“Am I my brother’s keeper? Yes, I Am
He would like to memory of him to be a happy one,
He like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done.
He like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
He like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that he left when life is done.
