WHERE YOU AND I WILL GO by Jeffrey Littrell

 

there is a place where you and I will go

of golden-hued meadows, where clear, blue oceans flow

where sunlight quickly dries the gentle rain

absolving us of all our sins and pain

 

with laughing children singing nursery rhymes

families remember cherished times

a million miles above, there shines a bright, majestic star

and everything between is just the miracle we are

 

I’ll take your hand when we finally reach this place

that doesn’t know addiction, poverty, or disgrace

and with each beat from our hearts we will derive

the answer to the mystery of why we were alive

 

to love each other is our only task

to help raise the fallen and not wait for them to ask

along the path of righteous truth we’ll go

to this wondrous place where you and I will go

 

This poem is written for my friend, currently serving a 3 year sentence at the Indiana Women’s Prison at the IDC. What is life without timeless love, the dream of a better place, and redemption through the remarkable strength of the human spirit ?
