Such an extraordinary thought conveyed in such beautiful words. Thank you for sharing, Brenda. If this is from Kay's personal experience, please let her know my heart goes out to her for her lose. If she wrote it because of the lose of someone she knows, my heart goes out to that person and to Kay for the beautiful expression. As does my heart goes out to all of our military in harms way.

It must have detected that I did not believe the doctrine of going straight to Heaven so when I tried to give a ten, it rejected my vote which annoyed me as I thought the poem was a beautiful line of thought from Kay. Beautiful Poetry deserves recognition and this is beautiful. Hope you win Kay.
