by Paul Mayes Jamar
With nothing new under the sun, I know those of yesteryear will come, and be a part of Heaven’s great fun with much in common with me, by gum. Those who I see in pictures of old, I will get to know intimately, their dreams, dislikes, they share so bold, we will compare our lives sincerely. Oh, to know what makes them tick, only a face from a childhood memory, my great, and grandparents’ tricks I learn, and what life was like in harmony. For in a more innocent time, they were, but they all have a thing in common, we all believe in Jesus, we do concur, hopefully one has been shot out of a cannon. The stories we will tell will never fail to put a smile on our faces and wonder what if with them I lived, oh what a tail? But then, we do, in Heaven’s great splendor.
