We'll Meet Again
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


WE'LL MEET AGAIN

No sinful flesh to God will rise
Before life’s Judge they’ll stand
Only loved one’s then one can see
Must be in Jesus’ hand

Yet oft will speak a broken heart
In times of grief and pain
“From me my loved one had to part
But soon we’ll meet again

My spouse has gone, yet true I’ll stay
We’ll meet again up there
We’ll build a home again some day
Wherein our love we’ll share”

Tis but in Christ; when born anew Jn.3:3
When to the flesh one’s dead
We’ll live just like the angels do
As Jesus Christ has said Lk.20:36

At home with God, we’ll have no mate
No marriage bonds to tie
There’ll be no need to procreate
For none in Heaven die!

Don’t think a spouse who’s gone before
Is waiting for your hand
There‘ll be no wedlock anymore
This truth’s to understand

Our home won’t be the same as earth
There’ll be no graves to see
No weddings, pain, no death or birth
For those the Lord set free

But take The Father at His word
No reason for despair
No eye has seen, nor ear has heard 1Cor.2:9
What waits for us up there?.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
