Thoughts of a wonderful person who has gone to heaven.

His Place In Paradise
                                                                     for Ivan (1940-2019)

So what will our dear friend be
experiencing as we start another day?
In heaven, will he be a boy playing joyfully;
or a young man at a party surrounded by his
best friends; or a father holding his dear children?

Will he be witnessing sights
no one has ever seen --
the glories of paradise
beautiful beyond human
comprehension?

Filled with such wonder,
the love he holds for those of us still on earth
must be seasoned with a bit of empathy.
Certainly our lives, good as they may be,
must pale in comparison with paradise.
Our friend is smiling down on us
while he basks in the warmth of Heaven,
in the joy of God's eternal love.
