Remembered in Heaven

Jun 06, 2016 03:37PM ● By Melanie Heisinger


It will be the past

and we'll live there together.


Not as it was to live

but as it is remembered.


It will be the past.

We'll all go back together.


Everyone we ever loved,

and lost, and must remember.


It will be the past.

And it will last forever. 

-- Patrick Phillips

In memory of Sybil Joyce Shames Kannry
