“Wish You Were Here” – performed by The Kingsmen

I can just see them
Walking on the shores of heaven
Praising the lord
And watching the tide roll in
Friends that have gone on
Oh, how I miss you so
And somehow I know if you could
That you’d let me know

That you’re doing fine
And it doesn’t hurt anymore
Things couldn’t be better
That heaven is worth waiting for
That you miss me to and till then
You’ll be praying for me
And I know if you could
Talk to me now
Than here’s what you’d say to me

[Chorus:]
Wish you were here
It’s such a beautiful place
Wish you were here
Nothing but clear sunny days
Well it never rains
And no one complains
And we haven’t seen a tear
We’re having a great time
Wish you were here…

I can just see them
Walking on the shores together
Their talking with Jesus
Safe and secure in his love
Friends and loved ones
Walking in heavenly peace
And I know if they could
Talk to me now
Then here’s what they’d say to me

[Chorus:]
Wish you were here
It’s such a beautiful place
Wish you were here
Nothing but clear sunny days
Well it never rains
And no one complains
And we haven’t seen a tear
We’re having a great time
Wish you were here…

Well it never rains
And no one complains
And we haven’t seen a tear
Oh, we’re having a great time
And we wish you were here

The song “Wish You Were Here” was performed by The Kingsmen and it was written through a musical collaboration between Barrow, Burns, Kooner, Thatcher, and Thair.

This is the type of song that will go well in conjunction with funeral poems that will remind the people of the wonderful life of the deceased. The lines of it are very good that they are applicable to any deaths in the family be it a dad, a mom, a sibling or a friend.

The piece talks about longing not only on the side of the families left behind but also in the spirit of the person who died.

The lyrics would tell us that even if our loved ones have already gone, they would still want to be with us as we want them to still be alive.

The song also talks about heaven and how wonderful this place is. There is no hatred but love and there is a space for everybody. In time, everyone will be in heaven spending more happy memories with their loved ones.

A line even says, “We’re having a great time” which means you should let them rest in peace because they are happy to where they are right now.
