If Only

If only we could see the splendour of the land
To which our loved ones are called from you and me
We'd understand

If only we could hear the welcome they receive
From old familiar voices all so dear
We would not grieve

If only we could know the reason why they went
We'd smile and wipe away the tears that flow
And wait content.

RE: Nathaniel Heaney Edit
Oh, good! After I sent the edit on spouse, I thought to myself that it was really none of my business! ha Somehow I stumbled onto Nathaniel and started reading the family links and realized they weren't linked together as spouses. Such an interesting history. Love Jane's face. I enjoy the old pictures and history.
