Crossing Over

Oh, please don't feel guilty
It was just my time to go.
I see you are still feeling sad,
And the tears just seem to flow.
We all come to earth for our lifetime,
And for some it's not many years
I don't want you to keep crying
You are shedding so many tears.
I haven't really left you
Even though it may seem so.
I have just gone to my heavenly home,
And I'm closer to you than you know.
Just believe that when you say
my name, I'm standing next to you,
I know you long to see me,
But there's nothing I can do.
But I'll still send you messages
And hope you understand,
That when your time comes to
“cross over,”  I'll be there
to take your hand.

Cry For Me No More

Cry for me no more.
For I have entered God’s heavenly door.
It is the place of true rest,
Don’t forget to do your best.
I have found peace with the Creator.
It is now up to you to one day take this journey, too.
Fear not, it is a place where all things are made new.
“Forgive us of our sins” was my chant.
Don’t even think, “I can’t make it in.”
You can win. Cry for me know more.
For I have entered God’s heavenly door.

Darkness Fell

I ask The Lord to be with me,
As  I walked through the dell,
Then came the dark of night ,
And the darkness quietly fell.

Then I trembled in great fear,
As the darkness hung low,
Then I heard The Father say,
"The darkness is my shadow."

Death Is A Door

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall;
On gentle hinges it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call.

Along the linted are green leaves,
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill.

There is nothing to trouble any heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door
In an old wall.
–Nancy Byrd Turner
