PAINT ME A PICTURE
Paint me a picture of what Heaven must be© 1996 Dorothy Womack
For I’m a mere mortal, and I cannot see
The realms that you dwell in – the places you know
So paint me a picture and help me to grow
Into the knowledge which you now possess –
Impart to me wisdom, counsel and rest ---
Twirling around in the Light of God’s Love
Grant me a glimpse of Heaven above.
Yes, paint me a picture with guiding hands
Of Heavenly Hosts – Waterfalls – Angelic Bands
Majestic mountains – Singing saints –
Places and scenes, which only you could paint!
And I’ll wait for tomorrow to come
When we’ll be united, together, as one
Until then – While we must dwell apart
Just paint me a picture, to hold in my heart!
*This poem was written for my mother’s epitaph. Mom had visited Heaven before she died, and lived to tell about it. A self-taught artist in her late 60s, Mom was told by a glowing being that she would be painting the landscapes of Heaven when she came Home…
