Traveling In and Out of Heaven - Poem

Traveling In and Out of Heaven - Poem

July 22 2017 - Elaine Feuer

I walk into his room, and as I take his hand, I ask him: “Have you seen Mom and Dad?” His eyes almost pop out, and he squeezes my hand so hard that it hurts! We were extraordinarily fortunate to have parents who thought that nothing was more important than their children. We have all heard stories about people leaving their bodies: it could be a “near death” experience; traveling in and out of heaven; whether it’s a metaphor or there is a genuine “heaven.” Allan’s impassioned rejoinder discloses that he has seen our parents. It could be in a dream, or perhaps he saw the white light and our parents at the end of the tunnel. I think Allan wants me to know that he has seen Norman and Blanche Feuer in a magical place, and if our parents are there, it has to be heaven!

He tells me, he’s traveling, in and out of heaven,

I know it, I tell him, he’s la crème de la crème.

He tells me, he has years of more living to do,

I know it, he shows it, for everyone to view.

He tells me, it’s been such a meandering road, I know it, we’re fighting, to win this unfair war.

He tells me, he’s tired, and may be ready to go,

I know it, I tell him, yet I still need him so. He tells me, he’ll keep battling, alongside of me

I know it, I tell him, he will soon be set free. He tells me, he’s traveling, in and out of heaven,

I know it, I tell him, he’s la crème de la crème.
