If Today Should End Without Me



If today should end without me,
With no time to say goodbye...
Let this poem be a reminder
Of words that join both you and I


Poets come in the Name of Jesus
To love, minister, and bless...
To bring a Word of knowledge
Or challenge each one to a test.


God is seen through many mirrors,
Though imperfect on their own,
His reflection can be realized..
His direction clearly shown.


I may not be near in body
But I will be close in heart.
For love can never pass away...
Death cannot keep friends apart.


We all know the time will come...
We must all walk through that door.
But I will only be away...
Never gone forever more.


I've gained a lot from each of you...
I've learned to love you all.
Your loving prayers still hold me up
You are there each time I call.


You have touched me with your poetry...
All your words have played a part
In the poetic happiness
I have housed within my heart.


I call you friends because you are...
I have not been more sincere.
We may never meet within this realm
But the next one's drawing near.


So, if today should end without me...
I'll be safe within His care.
If you are trusting in God's Grace,
Then, my friend, you'll join me there.
