Say Goodbye - Poem by JOHNNY COBB

Brother Jessie was nearly ninety
I knew he soon would die.
I visited him at the nursing home
So I could say goodbye.

He was in such fragile health
I only stayed awhile.
And when I left his bedside
He thanked me with a smile.

He'd been a leader in our church
For almost forty years.
And when the Good Lord called him home
I shed those Heavenly tears.

No finer Christian
I'll recall with a sigh.
Glad I made that one last trip
So I could say goodbye.
