The Test - Poem by Crystal Johnson

Dont cry my children
You're safe with me
Your chains are broken
You now are free

You served me well
You did your best
but your time has come
And you passed your test

You're not being punished
But greatly rewarded
Yes, your old life has ended
But a better has started

Dont worry my children
Your loved ones are safe
I will protect them
They too have a place

They know you've been welcomed
In heaven above
They know you've been blessed
And given my love

So take my hand now
And you soon will see
my plan's been completed
'Cause of you believeing in me

I've waited so long
For this moment to come
So please trust in me
And I will take you home

See, your job you have done
And you did your best
but your time has come
And you passed your test.

    Cool stuff...we all should be rewarded for the good things that we do. This is a good way of rewarding someone you know. Good poem. (Report) Reply
