A Funeral Calls


The lights are dim and the music is low
There is such a chill in the air
There are friends and family gathered
They have come from everywhere

I don't know all these people
They're all dressed in black
There is such gloom and sorrow
I see my mom she's crying in the back

I'm not sure what's going on around me
I feel like no one is aware
They all seem so far away and distant
I feel all alone like no one cares

I'm not even sure how I got here
Everything seems like such a daze
Oh, wait I think I remember now
There was a crash as I started out my day

But surely I'm not dead
I would be in Heaven by now
I went to church and did what I was suppose to
I did everything I knew how

And if this is hell it's not really all that bad
I don't see any fire and brimstone
Woo I don't see any devil
No demons or burning bones

Oh, wait the music is getting louder
Everyone seems to be taking a seat
Why is my dad carrying my mom
My brothers and sisters are all at her feet

I'm really getting scared now
This isn't funny anymore!
Where are all these people from
They keep coming through the door

I've got to get to my mom
She's draped over someone I can't see
It seems to be someone she knows
Oh My God! I can't be, it’s ME!

This is got to be a nightmare or something
There is no way this can be true!
God where are you now?
I think it's time I need You!

My God! Please forgive me?
I wasn't ready to go!
I promise I'll be good and never sin again
My God in heaven please don't say No!

Who are those men in the long black coats?
They're coming this way
MOM! Can you hear me?
DAD! Please can you hear what I say?

-As all of time stood still
And the room grew very dark
Satan came for his victim as he slithered in the room
The demons all followed do their part

'You belong to me now!
I came to take you to your new home
I'm sure you will hate it there
All the crying and all the moans

Don't you wish you had listened to this God
He gets all in my way!
Haha but now it's too late!
This is your judgment day! '

I've been watching you since you were little
I've planned outings and you took the bait
Remember that time you went to church
They gave an altar call but thought you could wait?

Enough about the good ole days
It's now your time to go
Wave goodbye to mommy and daddy
I am taking your precious soul! '

-Time will stop when you least expect it
No one can save you then
Fall to your knees and ask the Savior
To be your heavenly Father and take away your sin

All of Glory awaits your answer
No more anxious than God Himself
He yearns for your friendship
No one has to go to hell!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
