I dreamed a dream of a garden so beautiful and fair.

As I walked among the flowers, I saw my loved ones there.

My dear white haired grandmother who taught me Irish lullabies

Sat in the sunny arbor she was smiling at me with her eyes.

“My child, I’m so glad to see you, I’ve missed you oh so much.

Come, let me hold you, I’ve longed so long for your touch.

Then I saw my beloved father standing amid the trees

As I ran to hug him and kiss him, I could smell his scent on the breeze.

My body was that of an adult, but my heart was that of a child,

And as he held me close to him it beat fast and wild.

Then I saw the wondrous light emanating from beyond the wood

And as I looked into it, I knew that’s where my Savior stood.

Slowly I walked forward to see him was my goal

Each step I took added more reverence to my soul.

And I knew no fear of dread because his smile showed me

What his holy words had said that he had always loved me

Even before I drew my first breath

And that he had offered himself to save me from eternal death.

He opened his arms wide and beckoned me draw near,

And he whispered to me, “My child, I so glad you’re here.”

Regis is right Bobbi, the picture only enhances what the words of the poem say. This is such a fantastically beautiful portrait of longing, communing, and praying. I love every word of this fantastic poem. Thnx Bobbi for sharing. May the Lord Jesus bless you and yours, and all those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
