Our Eternal Home - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

I met a doctor who had cancer,
He could not believe it was stage four.
At sixty, to me he was younger,
He said he still had a lot to live for.

I saw the despair in his eyes,
The hopelessness there and the great pain.
Life is so short and before we realize
Our days are ending, a brief time remains.

There was no cure that I could bring,
Only the comfort of words and prayer.
I asked the LORD for mercy and healing
For I trusted God Who is the true Healer.

I told him that Jesus is the only Way,
And this doctor believed that He died for us.
He received Christ as LORD and Savior that day
And the new life God gives that is so precious.

Death is the fate of all men on earth,
Our eternal home has rooms for me and you.
God's Word does not return void, it goes forth
In Christ we will live though we die, it's true!

    This unshaken faith in God is what the world needs today! Man is so powerless, but when He is by our side, we grow powerful! An uplifting poem! (Report)Reply

    'Life is so short and before we realize
    Our days are ending, a brief time remains' - so true!
    Death is inevitable. For those who prepare well for it, it's neither scary, nor saddening.
    Congratulations on your poem's selection as the 'Member Poem of the Day'!

    The feeling of dying when you just have so much more to live for is heart breaking.
    To have to accept death at this time and finalise everything also.
    Thank You

    What a joyful poem! What makes it different is the person of Christ! He believed, received, therefore though he dies of cancer, he shall live again through Christ when Christ returns to create a new heaven and new earth! (Report)Reply

    " Birth and death are the definite destinations,
    To be shuttled in life of progeny of human.
    Life, thus, granted gives it a makeshift home,
    It has to go after death to eternal home" .
    A great spiritual truth versified. Congrats on well deserved poem of the Day.10 points.
