'MEET YOU AT THE GATE'

   
 
A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN NOW STANDS ALONE,
MISSING THE ONE WHO NUTURED IT
BUT NOW SHE IS GONE,
HER FLOWERS STILL BLOOM,
AND THE SUN STILL SHINES,
BUT THE RAIN IS LIKE TEAR DROPS,
FOR THE ONE'S LEFT BEHIND,
 
THE WEEDS LAY WAITING TO TAKE THE
GARDENS BEAUTY AWAY,
BUT THE BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES OF ITS KEEPER
ARE IN OUR HEARTS TO STAY,
 
SHE LOVED EVERY FLOWER EVEN SOME
THAT WERE WEEDS,
SO MUCH LOVE SHE WOULD PLANT
WITH EACH LITTLE SEED,
 
BUT JUST LIKE HER FLOWERS SHE WAS
PART OF GOD'S PLAN,
SO WHEN IT WAS HER TIME HE REACHED
DOWN HIS HAND,
 
HE LOOK THROUGH THE GARDEN SEARCHING
FOR THE BEST,
THAT'S WHEN HE FOUND ALBERTA,
IT WAS HER TIME TO REST,
 
IT WAS HARD FOR THOSE WHO LOVED HER,
TO JUST LET HER GO,
BUT GOD HAD A SPOT IN HIS GARDEN,
THAT NEEDED A GENTLE SOUL,
 
SO WHEN YOU START MISSING ALBERTA,
REMEMBER IF YOU JUST WAIT,
WHEN GOD HAS A SPOT IN HIS GARDEN,
 
 
SHE'LL   MEET   YOU   AT   THE   GATE. . .
 
 
 
 
TO  MY  DEAR  FRIEND,   ALBERTA
 I   LOST,     SATURDAY,  NOVEMBER 27TH. . .
 
 
 
 
LOVE YA,    ~Barbara
