Poetry and Art for the Soul

Cabin in the Sky

She asked for a cabin in the sky;
Nothing fancy she’d say.

I know now her wish came true.
When in a dream
She invited me to view
Her new home.

She guided me through
Green pastures of Kentucky blue grass,
fields of stargazer lilies and yellow and white daffodils galore,
knolls of lavender and rows of sage
and trees laden with fruit coming of age

Eleven years have gone by since her passing
And through this dream
Her message was clear:
There is nothing to fear!
The love never dies;
And I am so happy
She got her Cabin in the Sky.
