Poetry Schmoetry BLOGFEST!

I'm a little late on this. I just discovered it, but I have a piece I'd like to share that's close to my heart. A friend of mine has just experienced the worst thing any mother could ever go through and this was my outlet. I've actually put it to music, but I don't know how to share that part and it's not quite finished besides.

My Wynken, Blynken and Nod
By Janyece Swineford

Goodbye is a moment
That passes into time
It never lasts forever
You will always be mine
Time being. I will hold you
In folds of memory
But one day we'll be together
In celestial eternity

I see you now and forever
Resting in your mansion in heaven
Held in the Savior's arms
Kept in your mother's heart
I see you now

Our time here is so short
I will treasure its brief gift
My love lasts forever
It's the lens I see you with
Time being. I will hold you
In the folds of memory
But one day we'll be together
In celestial eternity

I see you now and forever
Resting in your mansion in heaven
Held in the Savior's arms
Kept in your mother's heart
I see you now

This is just the beginning
Of the journey we will take
Though we travel in polar directions
Our stories end the same
