It’s about a dream – The American Dream – and the men and women who made it possible. We hope you’ll take just a moment to reflect upon the sacrifices of the men and women who fought and died for our freedom. That’s the true meaning of the holiday. Let’s pause this Memorial Day – Monday, May 29 – to give thanks, and honor those who gave their all for our country.
In My Dream World
In my dream world our families and friends would live everlastingly and never go away.
So I have to ask you God why can’t they stay?
I know they are a child of yours and you feel it’s time for them to be with you.
But my Father we love them too.
I want theirs and others futures to be bright.
And not be turned into Angels with diamond wings as they fly into the Heavenly light.
For most they have so much to look forward too.
But they have left loved ones behind tear drops flowing and feeling blue.
I acknowledge we have to keep their memories alive and locked inside our hearts.
But still in my dream world they remain very much a part.
Just know from up above they are watching you.
And also through God’s loving eyes he sees you too.
They do have the ability to read your soul and feel how you feel.
They realize that your love for them is still just as strong and very real.
Never wish my dear ones to not wake just so you can be with them once again.
For it’s not your fate now and only God on the pillows of softness knows when.
So now have happiness , a healthy life and love.
As you wink your eye and in spirit give a hug to those you cherish up above.
Before I go just one more thing.
You had a beautiful voice in living and even now as I secretly hear you sing.
Forever Loving You.
