A Poem Titled, 'Waiting at Heaven's Door'
In Memory Of Mary A'Brantes.....

Death beckoned her with outstretched
And whispered softly of an unknown
But she was not afraid to go
For though the path she did not know
She took death's hand without a fear

For God who safely brought her here
Had promised He would lead the way
Into eternity's bright day.

For none of us need go alone
Into the valley that is unknown,

But, guided by our Father's hand
We journey to the promised land.

You know that her love is with
you still
For she loved you in life and always
Love like hers can never end
Because it is the perfect blend
Of joy and sorrows, smiles and tears,
That just grew stronger with the years.

Love like hers can never die
For she's taken it with her to the sky...

So think of her as living above
No farther away than your undying love,

For now she is happy and free once more
And she's waiting for you at Heaven's door.
