And So Please Dear I write of death, and wonder why. Is death not life that has passed by? A door may close, another opens To bring to all the heavens, A light so bright, our souls cry out. Awaken please! Greet this day, For love my dear is here to stay. No pain, no strife, no heart aches To those of us that do awake. The peace and serenity we find here, Brings only joy and so please dears. Feel no pain for my passing. I have now found LOVE… everlasting. By Barbara Rodger Barbara will be missed and lovingly remembered by her family and friends.
