Poem for a funeral

The Golden Tree

 

A golden mist carries me along

My legs are weak, I am not strong

My body aches but my eyes can see

A golden tree awaits for me.

 

The leaves are spheres of golden bright

That fall below and open light

My friends appear, my parents too

My husband dear still standing true

 

The golden tree is like a star

The journey here well that's not far

The tree begins to shake and sway

Its lovely here, I think I'll stay

 

The golden tree so warm and bright

Just like a star within the night

There's thousands more or so they say

But our golden tree is here to stay

 

Our golden tree awaits for you

I waiting here, your family too

The golden tree is shining bright

It glows forever through the night

 

My life's not over, it continues on

I'm happy now I've joined along

We wait for you when you alight

When your time comes just follow the light
