Farewell - Poem by Linda Bella Wassermeister
This is my final note to you;
I feel my body shutting down.
No more landscapes are there to view;
I'm putting on my final gown.
Dear reader, when you think of me,
try not to focus on my faults;
instead just know I'm now set free,
and carefree, doing somersaults!
My soul is slim and slender now,
no longer burdened by the fat;
my love no longer will ask: "Wow!
Can we turn up the thermostat? "
My mother will now come for me
to join her in that other realm,
riding a ship on friendly sea,
with Jesus standing at the helm.
Oh, some will not believe, for sure
but I know what I say is true.
The ship is just a metaphor,
but He's the Captain; we're the crew.
You think this life is all there is?
I know it's not; I've seen much more!
We all must pass one final quiz
to find out what we have in store.
Dear P. H. friends, I love you all!
Saying goodbye just makes me sad,
but I see writing on the wall,
and I know I will soon be glad.
