There Will Be Days

There will be days when the sun doesn't shine,
When the heartache of this world all seem like mine.

There will be days which are cried away,
When the brightness of the heavens does not light my way.

There will be days when from my bed I cannot creep,
When the anchors of sadness are sunken in too deep.

But, there will be days where I smile again,
When the hope that I have shines from within.

There will be days where laughter abounds,
When the harshness of this year cannot be found.

There will be days that are filled with love,
Filled with sweet blessings that come from above.

There will be both days that fill my life til the end,
When off to the next world I will have an eternity to spend.

Heaven Does Not Wait For Me

Heaven does not wait for me,
For the hands of time, eyes do not see.
They tick and tock and trumpet on,
On a herald's cry they sing their song.

Heaven does not wait for me,
Time no longer, so shall it be.
Upon this earth, lay winter's dust,
As I was swept away with an angel's touch.

Heaven does not wait for me,
Time spent here does not come free.
We work and toil and march along,
But to this earth, we do not belong.

Heaven does not wait for me,
At the pearly gates, I pay my fee.
To enter into the great unknown,
I'll wait for you-as you remember me.
