Thanks for the suggestion.
Eternal Life Station
The Son shines bright at Eternal Life Station
Loved ones all gathered in anticipation.
For the train to arrive as it does everyday.
Where truth is revealed about earthâ€™s Passion Play.
Not too many ride trains anymore.
Gone with the past like the old candy store.
But this one is special, the ticketâ€™s one way.
Once you arrive, hereâ€™s where youâ€™ll stay.
Thereâ€™s no more tears, thereâ€™s no more pain.
Everyoneâ€™s healthy, the dragonâ€™s been slain.
Where serving the Lord is our greatest joy.
The plan He completed, canâ€™t nothing destroy.
Here comes old Peter, he runs the station.
He post the arrivals that come from each nation.
Tomorrowâ€™s new list, heâ€™ll put it up soon.
Thereâ€™ll be many folks check it, by mid afternoon.
Thereâ€™s no one I know, arriving today.
I just like hanging around, anyway.
Itâ€™s fun watching people and their bright happy faces.
And the emotions displayed in their loving embraces.
Thereâ€™s a man over there that waits for his sister.
Been ten years or more, Lord how heâ€™s missed her.
That father there, he waits for his son.
He used to be crippled now he can run.
Some wait for folks, that theyâ€™ve never met.
Touched by their writings that they canâ€™t forget.
Betty there, so Iâ€™ve been told.
Waits for a child she never did hold.
She died giving birth on a cold winter night.
What a sight to behold when those two unite.
You see, folks down below, they donâ€™t understand.
Theyâ€™re leaving a life for one here thatâ€™s grand.
With limited knowledge and faith that is frailed.
They donâ€™t know Godâ€™s plan, itâ€™s mighty detailed.
Well, here comes the band, all decked out in white.
Excitement is starting, thereâ€™s a smoke stack in sight.
You can hear the conductor and his joyful screams.
â€œNext stop folks, the land of your dreams!â€
Station master stands with the key to the city.
The pearly gateâ€™s shining, everything is so pretty.
â€œBack up folks, donâ€™t get hitâ€ is his cry.
Someone jokes â€œUp here... whoâ€™s going to die?â€
The big engine roars as it comes to a rest.
Thereâ€™s a huge load today, must say, Iâ€™m impressed.
The band starts to play, there are screams of delight.
As each finds their loved ones they hold on so tight.
The last person off gives me the most joy.
He walks up to Betty â€œHi mom, Iâ€™m your boy.â€
I stand, just smiling, knowing that someday Iâ€™ll see.
The oneâ€™s that I wait for arriving for me.
The stationâ€™s now clearing, the bands been dismissed.
Think Iâ€™ll wait around for tomorrowâ€™s new list.
Othersâ€™ start to gather as they do they same.
Some Iâ€™ve not seen. Some I know by name.
Here comes old Jerry, his his wife by his side.
Still young as ever, he holds her with pride.
â€œ Hey there Jerry, think Moody will make it?â€
â€œ Sure hope so, I miss his quick witâ€
â€œ I hear your old class is having a â€œ 60thâ€ birthday.
Collinâ€™s wonâ€™t be there, heâ€™s too cheap to payâ€
Someday theyâ€™ll all be here, from Brazosport High.
Tears, laughter and singing will fill up the sky.
Family and friends, look tâ€™ward the day.
When love one arrive, and none goes away.
I canâ€™t name them all too many to mention.
Itâ€™s way beyond, anyoneâ€™s comprehension.
Just rest assured, thereâ€™s one thing thatâ€™s true.
If weâ€™re up here, weâ€™re waiting on you.
