One Day He Will Come

How will we feel?
When we reach that last hour
On that day in December
Will we see Gods choir
Or will we go out in a blaze of glory
Is it really the end of earth’s story?
Another guess another tale
Will it happen or will it fail
How many times have we heard
how many times have we
Been scared but the sun
Has came up the very next day
And people go on living
In the same old way
They think for a moment
About all that they have done
Have they lived right?
And been nice to every one
But as the hour passes so dose
The fear and the party starts
As we approach the world
And another year
Some day he will come
We won’t know the hour
Only gods knows the day
And he won’t say
So we have got to be ready
And live a good life
Be faithful and show mercy
And live with out strife
And when he comes for one and all
We won’t have to worry
We can answer the call

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
