Thoughts from a scene that took place on the side of the road today as I traveled to work.
One never knows the why...or the when. But all should know to be ready, when its time to go.
He Stepped Out Today
He stepped out today,
Just left this world,
And quietly slipped away.
For an angel had called him
to his eternal home,
unto a place he had never known.
Yes, he stepped out today
And left this sighing world.
To chase eternity alone
Though he did not cry
Nor did he complain,
He just closed his eyes,
And left behind his pain.
There were those
Who tried to change
What God had willed,
But their efforts were in vain
For no matter the valiant endeavor of those around
There was nothing, no not nothing
That could keep this man from his appointed round.
Yes, oh but yes….
He stepped out today.
