Some thoughts on the loss of Mary Travers

A Tribute To Mary Travers.

Mary Travers now traverses
to distant realms as she's moved on
she lives "Where All The Flowers Have Gone."
and all the soldiers came to greet her
with Thanks or tributes in her song..
"Pack Up Your Sorrows" joy awaits her
she's " Been On The Road Too Long."
she's found "The Other Side Of This Life."
way past "The Rising Of The Moon,"
she'll go and "Tell It On The Mountain."
with her sweet angelic tunes.
"Don't Think Twice."- about her passing,
"It's alright" in "Canaan Land."
she'll love many one night stands
as she joins a heavenly band.
Bid "Kumbaya" to her tomorrows,
Dear "Michael Row the Boat Ashore"
help her across "Rivers of Jordan"
to where God's "Tender Hands " restore.
Eternal life forevermore.

"All God's Critters " will be waiting,
"Puff The Magic Dragon" too,
forever young, they both will frolic
in misty lands beyond all blues.
"Wasn't That A Time ' she gave us,
"Oh, Had I A Golden Thread>"
of her blond hair with daisies woven,
a chain of peace, full circle led.I
she will be singing for the Magi,
"Slack The Hangman's Rope".Dear Lord,
Just Because All Men Are Brothers"
silence all weapons, sheathe their swords.
'Weave Me Sunshine For The People "
let the healing now begin,
amidst the masses of confusion,
with answers "Blowing In The Wind. "
Someplace "On The Path of Glory '
where endless "Summer Highlands Fall "
walks a girl called " Pretty Mary '"
who will be sorely missed by all.
I'm sure that two of God's most precious
came to greet her on her way
Apostles, Peter, Paul, plus Mary
what great laughter they'll share each day..
"Light a candle" in her memory,
Mary's reached that distant shore
where the dreams she's had for decades,
will grant her peace forevermore.
