Sweet Bye and Bye

Come with me and we will fly,
see forever from the sky.

From forever, there is no lie,
from forever, there is no goodbye.

So all you have to do is try,
and join me in the sweet bye and bye.

Join me in this sweet bye and bye,
where days, and years go quickly by.

Where dreams come true if you try,
clouds never obscure the clear of eye,
happiness outshines sorrow's ire,
and you can have your heart's desire.

There is a place where you can shine,
a place for us in our design.

All you have to do is open your heart,
and you will have a brand-new start.

In the sweet, sweet, bye and bye.

Bye, bye.

Once again, as I was waking up this morning,
I got this idea for an uplifting poem and found
that I had trouble because my voice system would
not dictate "bye,” only "by." I am not at all
religious, but thought perhaps that the phrase
was from something I heard in church, so I
Googled it and found out that there is a hymn
by the name of, Sweet By-and-By, as well as
a novel that has considerable readership. While
I intended for the poem to be spiritual and positive,
psychologically, I certainly didn't want it to have
any connotation of being ordained by some other
force than one's inner strength and living every day
to the fullest. So, please don't misunderstand my
meaning. I did not read those hymn lyrics or read
the book or any other poems by that name, so I
hope I haven't violated any copyright or borrowed
from those sources.
