Accidental Poet

You Will Come To Know

You Will Come To Know


I know how you feel

How your pain seems unbearable at times

You think you’re doing fine

Then, out of the blue

It hits you and knocks you down

I Know


I know you wake up

In the middle of the night

Missing someone so close

But so far away

Your need to embrace them

I know


I know how your tears pour like rain

A torrential rainstorm

Is only a drop away

But you fight to hold it inside

At least until you’re alone

I know


I know you speak to them

Your heart cries out

Of the never ending love

That has always been between you

You look for signs of acknowledgement

I know


I know how the pride in your heart

A pride that comes from them

Can turn your frown into a smile

How that love is ever present

As you feel the embrace of Heaven

I know


I know how you would give

Almost anything for another chance

One more day with them

To touch your hand upon their face

To say, “I love you” again and again

I know


I know there’s only one place

One place you can go to

Where you can fall to your knees

With a rose in hand

One place that’s closest

To that Heaven in your heart

I know


I know you think of Heaven

As up in skies above

But Heaven is everywhere

And especially in our hearts

And this too

You will come to know
