WHEN I DIE

When I die
Cry not
I’ve done my part
Perhaps not enough
Yet brought some hope
Gave legs to dreams
And wings to ideas

When I die
Cry not
I rest peacefully than rivers
I sing better than birds
I shine brighter than stars
I run faster than lightning
I live longer than earth

When I die
Cry not
Before God I sit
Among elders I eat
Within angels I worship
With Jesus I stroll

When I die
Cry not
I’ll understand if you do
Yet soon
Resurrection morning come
When we reunite
Never to part again

When I die
Cry not

My Only Wonder

Applause dead
Stage cleared
Event over
Auditorium empty
Lights off

Home now
Room alone
One thought
One question
One wonder

“God, were you pleased?”
