Life's Victories - Poem by Buxton Shippy

When all the leaves have fallen
And this world says you're done,
Fix you're gaze on HIM;
HE never sleeps nor slumber,
HE believes in you still.

Even if you're writhed with pain,
Withering in the golden stages,
Give thanks;
If only for the days you've been given,
Rejoicing on the way,
Even to that place called Heaven.

Never let HOPE escape your heart,
For HE who promises is faithful.
Until I breathe my last breath
I'll concede nothing to the adversary.
I'll never forget my life's victories.
