About the Poem

This poem was written for a good friend of mine who was killed by a drunk driver 5 years ago. She had meant everything to me; but I believe that she is in heaven with God and is as happy as she ever was here on earth. I know that she is watching over me and all her loved ones...

A Few Visitor Comments

This poem just touched me so much. I give it the highest ratin. I've lost so many loved ones to death.
This poem was very comforting and i finished reading it with a smile. There's no greater gift then a poet's ability to make you smile even when the subject is soemthing as horrible as death.

That Other Land

It is not far away, the place to which they go.
It is just beyond the starlit skies;
it's where the moonbeams grow -
And night is day and day is night and sorrow
comes no more.
Where love abides beyond the tides upon a
golden shore,
And we must wait here for awhile - until it's time
to go.
Although we carry on, we mourn, because we miss
them so;
And through the years, GOD dries our tears...
He said, "My peace I give".
Oh GOD... We thank you for your help and
the chance to live.

This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing it.
Of all the poems I've read on this site so far, this is by far the best. I lost one of my close friends who I've known for 10 years to a car accident last night, I'm still in shock from it and it's hard to believe and it's hard to accept but I know she is in a better place, it's only a matter of time before I see her again.
Your writing is butiful and uninqe and don't let any one tell you differently! Sorry for your loss. I think that drunk driveing is sensles
