A Song for my Mum: If We Never Meet Again This Side of Heaven

A song for my mother, Pamela Jean Davies, on her birthday (4th March, 2012).  She would have been 61-years old.  She liked Johnny Cash in her younger days and to be honest I only started listening to him after she passed away.  These words have a very special meaning for me.

 

If We Never Meet Again This Side of Heaven

 

Soon we’ll come to the end of life’s journey

And perhaps we’ll never meet anymore

‘Til we gather in Heaven’s bright city

Far away on that beautiful shore

 

If we never meet again this side of Heaven

As we struggle through this world and its strife

There’s another meeting place somewhere in Heaven

By the side of the river of life

 

Where the charmin roses bloom forever

And where separation comes no more

If we never meet again this side of Heaven

I will meet you on that beautiful shore

 

They say we shall meet by the river

Where no storm clouds ever darken the sky

And they say we’ll be happy forever

In that wonderful sweet by and by

 

If we never meet again this side of Heaven

As we struggle through this world and its strife

There’s another meeting place somewhere in Heaven

By the side of the river of life

 

Where the charmin roses bloom forever

And where separation comes no more

If we never meet again this side of Heaven

I will meet you on that beautiful shore

 

I miss you, mum.  I love you so SO much – rest in peace xxxx
