Poetry Friday: Heaven

I usually like to wait for a while to post a poem I've read on Writers Almanac. I just can't with this one . . .

It will be the past
and we'll live there together.

Not as it was
to live
but as it is remembered.

It will be the past.

We'll all go back together.

Everyone we ever loved,

and lost, and must remember.

It will be the past.

And it will last forever.

Today, Poetry Friday is being hosted by Amy over at The Poem Farm.
