Heaven's Gardens

artwork provided by Alias Jinksy for Two in Tandem #8
Worlds collide, exploding in pink,
Blue and green hues mash together,
Transforming the days' moments
Precious lives remembered like art,
Imprinted on the hearts of those
Remaining in the days to come.

Each speckling the world in their own way,
Leaving impressions of who they were,
Lest we know in our hearts, we too
Shall one day rise to the glory 
Of radiating heavens gardens, pink 
Blossoms mark the precious ones.

Seedlings spring forth to remind,
Everyday moments engraved in minds
Of loved ones, while angels guide,
A blessed trip only to be offered when,
Times between loved ones cut short,
Yet truly, it is their time to go home.

This has been an incredible period of multiple losses, moments remembered in the hearts of those left behind, families struggling to make sense of it all.... When I stopped by Two in Tandem and found this wonderful piece of art as this weeks prompt, it so reminded me of Heaven's Gardens in which many of my friends are arriving at during this brief time.  Many others whom have gone before are welcoming these precious hearts home, angels guiding their journey to heaven's gardens.      This ones for all of you who have moved on and for the families of those continuing to struggle right now.  We miss you all so much already.

Someday it will be our turn to make that trip, but till then, as I was told by the person I love most - "Life, was meant for living."

I try.
