Something to think about. God Bless. Luke


I passed away a week ago
And find it hard to let go.
Oh, I truly love you so
Time to go but I say no .

Still so much left to do
Still need to hug a few
More to tell, ďI love youĒ
This all to me is so new.

On to Heaven , a special trip
Forgive me God if I seem flip
Some one made an awful slip
This time to go I have to skip.

Thereís my wife she needs me so
To help my brother , I have to go
My daughters wedding , I canít miss
Just let me have that final kiss .

Donít cry for me , itís not that bad
For I have been a joyful Dad .
With in your love Iíve been so glad
Just didnít realize this would be so sad .

Itís just so hard to understand
I was always the helping hand .
Who will be there to help them through ?
Oh forgive me Lord , I know , itís YOU.

This is so very beautiful. You have captured the darkness of death and turned it into sweet sorrow. Keep writing, your words inspire me.

God Bless,

This was so sad for me in the beginning but the ending brought a sense of relief because God is always there and may not be there right when you need him but always on time.

An inspiring composition on FAITH and LOVE... FAMILY and Togetherness... "PLEASE DON'T CRY FOR ME" gives wings to imagination and assurance to humanity.

Long Healthy Life, Poet!

Definitly thought provoking. We all have those thoughts, of those we leave behind, one day, so alone, so sad and sometimes terrified. A very good write.

"Something to think about"...indeed!
Is anyone ever truly ready to let go of this life?
This piece should make some stop & think. Thank you!
