Words of comfort

Things have been really hard in my family lately. I'm faced with the possible death of my sister, and it's really really scary, and just a sad time. I was really feeling it this night/morning (whatever way you want to look at it) and all of a sudden, these words just came in to my head. Just this idea, of how it's going to be after we die. It was so comforting to me, I just had to write it down. And I know that it wasn't my own imagination that put this idea in me. It's just proof that in our hardest times, God is the one who really comforts us. The poem is called 'The Day I Look Forward To' I hope you all like it.


THE DAY I LOOK FORWARD TO

One day, when I come home,
I will climb in to my father's lap,
he will sing me a lullaby,
of all that he has done,
and slowly rock me to sleep.
He will take away the pain
of the life I'm done living,
and he'll wipe the last tear
away from my cheek.

And I will never hurt again.
He will show me the world,
the way it was meant to be.
I will live out my dream,
in his fortress of peace.
And I will see what he has made for me.

He will take my hand,
and lead me down the street.
A perfect world,
and I will know no fear.
And I will see the grandparents I never knew before.

He will whisper softly to me,
and wrap me in his arms.
The strongest shelter,
and I will be at peace.
And I will feel his powerful love.

I look forward to the day,
when I come home,
and I will climb in to my father's lap.
He will sing me a lullaby,
of all that he has done,
and slowly rock me to sleep.
