Beyond the Gate

Mommy what’s up there just past the gate

It’s a land that no one has ever seen

I hear it’s splendor and gold and things

Daddy what’s up there unseen beyond the gate

It’s a land where beauty and mirth flow

There are things you never will see not until you are grown

Sister please tell me what is on the path past the gate

I’ve heard it never ever ends

there are animals and pools and lots and lots of bends

Brother tell me what is past the bend beyond the gate

They say there are unimaginable  things

the water sings and they all have wings

Grandmother what is past the waters beyond the gate

honey it wont be too long til I will see

just wait a spell and you will sing and play there with me

Grandfather what is past where we sing and play beyond the gate

grandchild there is a world where no one hates

for my family I patiently wait just beyond the gate
