"MY TIME"

Post by Don » Tue Jan 25, 2011 4:53 pm

MY TIME ©


Death will come to all of us somewhere along the way,
To some it will call when very young others a much later day.

Some will die in a restful sleep and some will die in pain,
Some will smile as they let go and some will show its strain.

At times I wonder what it will be like and when will it beckon me?
Will I be conscious of its knock or will it come suddenly?

Will I be holding tight to things that I can’t take along?
Material things you think you need yet know they don’t belong.

If I could pick the time of year and maybe even the hour,
I think I’d choose a morning spring as the buds begin to flower.

But then again the fall is nice with winter coming on,
It mirrors life so many ways, were born and than were gone.

A lot of things I’ve left undone with so many more to try,
I have always hoped I’d finish them long before I die.

But if my time should come today, next week or a distant year,
I hope your thoughts of me are kind, with a smile to hide the tear.

Poeticly speaking, simply a masterpice, poetry at its best. Message, something I also have written about (why not?) I would guess that many have thought these very same things Don. If I had the time, I would comment on every single one of you poems. I do read more than I comment on. Thank you for sharing. God bless.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

Don,
This is so good and definately a part of life, If we want to get to Heaven one day then this is how we will go unless God comes back first.

God Bless You Eva
