Sometimes I Wish I Didn't Believe in Heaven
Sometimes I wish I didn't believe in Heaven,
that those I loved were not so resoundingly gone,
that they lingered in the places they knew best,
the work they poured their hearts into,
the people they spent their lives caring for.
Sometimes I wish I didn't believe there was a life after death,
at least not one that takes place somewhere else,
somewhere I can't go,
and they can't return from.
