Togetherness Is Foreverness
(A Poem by: Cecil Riddle to his “Angel”)
My worries are over, My “Angel” awaits, till we walk though those pearly gates. Hand in hand together we stroll, on the streets made of pure gold. Forever with Jesus at his throne, together forever in our new home. No more heartaches, no more fears. God has wiped away all of our tears. No more sorrow, no more pain. Nothing to lose but everything to gain.
