The Greatest Treasure ~ Michaela Tommy

For some it is the comfort of presence
For most it is the enjoyment of being
All those of every generation, all those descendants
Brought together by feeling

The sorrowful departure of a loved one
Brings together those who wish him farewell
Those that spend time to enjoy the sun
Reminisce in stories to tell

Sorrow and joy mix the colour of the sky
As angels open the heavenly gates in welcome
We part to meet so this is not goodbye

In spirit or distance we will always come
Family is a treasure to hold deep in your heart
Always know that we shall never part.

  1. This is very moving. Especially "we part to meet so this is not goodbye." It is wonderful when someone feels this way about their family. A beautiful poem.
