Who Will You Take To Heaven With You? - Poem by Denis Martindale

The Lord appeared, his very last day,
The day that he must die...
'Who will you take to Heaven with you? '
Christ asked, but no reply...
The man just stood there staring,
With eyes that could not blink,
As if he were uncaring
Or much too scared to think...

Then two salty tears began to flow...
For forty years of waste!
'Who will you take to Heaven with you? '
Christ asked the fool He faced...
The man knelt down still weeping,
With eyes that were red raw,
For while his faith was sleeping,
He never preached God's Law...

Then Lord Jesus wept beside His friend,
For whom He gave His life!
'Who will you take to Heaven with you? '
Christ asked, sharp as a knife...
The man repented there and then
And vowed He'd preach the Word!
'Too late! ' said Jesus, 'This is when
Your life ends on this world...'
