I Attended My Funeral Today. - Poem by Royston Allen

I attended my funeral today.
My soul left my body and soared away.
because I had breathed out my final breath
and walked with Jesus through the Vale of Death.

For my soul no longer needed to share
the dead body that lay in the coffin there
because its sell by date had now expired.
It was empty and was longer required.

A new body had been given to me
one that was equipped for eternity.
No longer subject to pain and decay
just like Jesus had that first Easter day.

When you have grieved, I hope that you'll all see
that we can once again united be.
For each Christian death's a stepping stone
and all of us shall meet before God's throne

    I've always thought I would like to attend my own funeral, as did Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Joe Harper.
    Well written.
