I’ll See You At Home

There was a lady in my life for years
Who was so very dear to me
One day I had to say good-bye
She was on her death bed, you see

I sat beside her bed for hours
As she was in and out of sleep
It was so hard because I knew
She was someone I couldn’t keep

My life would be so empty
Yes, I knew this to be true
Once she had left and gone to God
If you knew her, you’d feel it too

For she was a true lady of God
Her life had belonged to Him
She’d thought about it carefully
It was not done on a whim

But she was elderly now, you see
She became so thin and frail
God was waiting and she knew it
For heaven would now prevail

She awakened and I kissed her
She said, “I’m dying now, you know.”
I told her “Yes I know you are
And I’m going to miss you so.”

I finally had to walk away
And on with my life I’d roam
But I heard her say very softly,
“I will see you, dear, at home! ”

    I have a lot of respect for those who can rhyme
    but still make sense! Thank you so much for that inspiring story about faith and acceptance of death! Thank you once again!
