Simply going home

what will tomorrow truly bring?
i wonder will i cry or will i sing?
will i make each moment count?
or simply sit, beaten, down and out

life much shorter now is what they say
i should injoy each moment of every day
grandchildren i will never see grown
soul mate far to soon left all alone

slowly my body will begin to weaken and fail
even my mind will become slow and frail
they say it wont take long before i die
what do i tell the children when they ask why?

that God has a master plan for us all
i must fill each day with memorys to recall
hope they understand i am simply going home
no longer sick or frail, no longer this earth to roam

I'll be waiting to greet each and every one of you
please lets injoy my days, no matter how few
intill we meet again inside heavens golden gate
please dont rush, take your time, I can wait

Tamara Hart Claim this poet

hello I am a 50yr old mother of five and grandmother of seven. i just recently married my best friend of ten years, i dont know what took us so long, all i know is that we were meant to be he is truly my soul mate. about 20yrs ago i wrote all the time i managed to put together a book of poems called growing pains but as i am poor at spelling and punctuation and there was no such thing as lap tops and no spell check i trusted a close friend to edit it, i failed to keep my own copys why i dont know well i never saw her or the book again. most of the poems were painful dark heart felt poems because my life was in a really bad place and i felt like a fool for trusting her. well i refused to write after that for a long time then life started getting better as i grew and searched intill i found my self i started thinking about writing again but as i had only written from a place of intense pain i had no idea where to start so i wasted 20yrs of living what i now realize could have been great verse. than on the night of my wedding i wrote two souls joining and my new husband got his first look at my verse and was impressed {of course he is biased] i often tell him that if the world could see me thru his eyes life would be a trip. well anyways he started encouraging me to to atleast write ten min a day. well that was sept 13th and i feel as tho i have found my voice again and this time i found my self able to write both happy and sad. i look forward to sharing my work with all of you and injoying all your wonderful writes as well. and who knows maybe someday i will come across a book of poetry called growing pains and all that will matter is that its being read. i wish you all many great writes and i thank you all from the bottem of my heart for the time you spend reading my work thank you for the input. be blessed more…
