I feel strength waning, being hard to walk!
Oh, yes, for quite awhile!
Hearing about gone, just left ear left!
But there is still a smile!
And why not, when heaven is waiting!
I surely mean, “Why not?”
Delivered from sin! Walking in light!
Sinning all but forgot!
Oh, once in awhile there’s a temper flare,
Old man taking a stand.
But nothing will keep me from joining that
I played a mean trumpet a time ago
Many comments received,
Did not need notes, played by ear!
Is Heavenly Band conceived?
Played lead, one year, in a traveling quartet!
Best sound I have ever heard!
This from a Salvation Army trumpeter
A part of me transferred!
Into that horn, sure came out naturally,
Seems I did not need to think.
Like my voice, those keys decreed
What to do in a blink!
The false-teeth put an end to that!
Kissed that trumpet good-bye.
Believe the best friend I ever had!
In heaven, I will know why.
Sure, Gabriel will say, “Saved a spot for you,
“Do the lead! I will harmonize!”
Can you believe that sweetest sound!
You will hear! Never dies!

Think of it, Heavenly Band!
