' LAST FAREWELL


Don't grieve for me, now I am gone
You knew I could not stay -
The road was rough, I was too weak
To last another day;

I knew my days were numbered,
Although to leave was sad -
So many lovely memories
Of everything I had;

My life, my loves, my family
That meant so much to me -
I carry them within my heart
To where I need to be;

And where I go is not so far,
I'm just a thought away -
You call to me and I'll be there
Beside you as you pray;

My heavenly family's waiting,
I see them gather 'round -
Find peace, and know I'm not alone,
For I am heaven bound.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
