What If... I Were Gone Tomorrow???

What If… I Were Gone Tomorrow?

If you knew I didn’t have
much longer to live.
How much of your time
would you be willing to give?

You used to come by and
knock on my door.
But for some reason, I don’t
see you any more.

I don’t know if it was
something I said or did.
Whatever it was… You seem unwilling
to forgive.

These many years have
passed us by.
And very soon now… I am going to die.

When you stand before God…
what will your answer be?
When you’re asked why you
didn’t spend time with me?

I wished we could have spent
some time together.
Very soon I’ll be gone forever

May you take each moment
from this day on…

May you take each moment and
each breath you breathe.
Is an opportunity for God
for us all to achieve.

Reaching others for Christ
is what we must obtain.
It was for everyone that our savior came!

By Jim Pemberton

To truly love those whom
you feel are “wrong.”

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
