Judging - Poem by Herbert H. Smith

Our friends and loved ones that we have lost from this life
We may meet again someday
If somewhere along the line
Some of us don't go astray

We should not be too quick to judge
The ones that have passed on
The judging should be lifted up to the man
That sits upon the throne

He knows all of our strengths and weaknesses
Also all of our greatest fears
Some of us he doesn't have to worry much about
An some of us he has to hold near

Like the shepherd who found he had lost one of his sheep
AT the end of a long day
He left the rest of his flock
To find the one that had gone astray.
