What Would Happen?



By Jim Pemberton (c) 2008



What would happen if someone

close to us were to die?

Would there be compassion?

Would anyone cry?


I know of someone who doesn't

have much longer to live.

No family comes around,

and nothing to give.


Much of the family have been

busy "tryin' to get even."

An "eye for an eye" is

what they're believin


It is most unfortunate

and very truly sad.

What he's done for others--

they're not glad!


They've all chosen to go

their separate ways.

None of them listening to what anyone says.


One fact of life they

refuse to ponder.

This loved one won't

be around much longer.


So many have spent

years drifting apart.

Not holding Christ' love

deep within their heart.


This loved one will be in

better hands... I know!

He'll live forever...with the

redeemer of his soul!


He will soon pass away

and will be forgetten.

But he'll be with Jesus--

God's only begotten!


Perhaps someday his

"loved ones" will see.

Today it could be you...

tomorrow... it could be me

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!
