You Need To Prepare Yourself
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By J. Mollett
Other Poems by J. Mollett

You need to prepare yourself, you have a loved
one or a close friend, very ill. The doctors
say they have done all they can. It's in the
Lord's hands and up to her or him and time.

You need to prepare yourself, you want to help,
the most you can do is pray, be there for them.
Miracles have been known to happen and can. Yes,
the words you've just heard is very hard to take.
Pray to the Lord for them. Ask him for strength
and guidance to help both of you thru this.

You need to prepare yourself, I was told to tell
the families that, from the Nurses and Head Nurse
I used to work with. I love working in the hospital
as a Nurses Aide, that was one part I didn't like.
But that's another poem or article to come.

You need to prepare yourself, there is saddeness,
that's part of life. Just pray and hope the person
has come to peace with the Lord. Repent their sins,
for the Lord forgives all. Even a fool will repent
their sins. Even thou they're scared, there's always
an Angel nearby to help ease the way.

You need to prepare yourself, I heard something
mentioned to my best friend about her husband. Also
on a true story I watched. Knowing nothing else can
be done, no inprovements, fighting to live. Having
so much pain, body so tired, to tell them:
It's okay to let go.

I was caught off guard, wasn't expecting to hear
that. Is it okay to tell them, hurting so. It does
make sense. Yes, you'll miss them dearly, hurting
so much. You know they are in so much pain. At
least when they do pass away, you know they're in
peace and no more pain. They're gone, but they will
always be in your heart, memories. Maybe watching
over you, up in heaven. It is said when you hear
a bell ring, an Angel has just receieved their
No more pain, no more sorrow in heaven.
