Just this side of heaven is a place called Beloved Hearts,
where there is only joy and love. Color has no meaning, 'cept beautiful.
A place where we are all one, in perfect harmony.

The young are in the arms of the angels who watch over them.
All those who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor.
All those who were hurt or disabled are made whole and strong again.

Our Beloved Hearts are happy and content, except for one thing;
all remember those who were special to them, who had to be left behind.

They await that special day;
when we are all called home,
because our time on earth is done.

We are greeted; a joyous reunion in the divine presence of our beloved Creator.
To look once more into the eyes of our Beloved Hearts;
So long ago gone from our lives, but never absent from our hearts;
never to be parted again...

-Ginny Brancato
