Many Have Gone on before Me...

Many Have Gone On Before Me…


As I grow old, many I know have gone on before me.

Some I didn’t know.   And some knew me.


In life, there’s one thing that’s very certain.

We don’t know when we’ll meet life’s “final curtain.”


No matter how we try to look, or seek a “younger appeal.”

One day, old age comes, and the end of life seems real!


Our lives down here, could end tomorrow!

No matter how many years we may try to “borrow.”


God knows when the end of our lives will be!

The question is: Where will you spend your eternity?


You may seek all of this world’s wealth and fame.

But when death comes calling…

 It knows your name!


You can go through life, and keep “pretending.”

But God knows when your life will be ending!


He’s prepared for you, a place in his eternal city.

There’ll be no more sorrow, pain or pity!


All of the angels in heaven await your choice!

Each person coming to heaven,,,  They all rejoice!


Jesus loves you!  This is great news!

His gift of salvation...  Please don’t refuse!


Think about those who’ve gone on before you!

And the wonderful God that always knew you!


Every breath you breathe… Each step that’s taken…

Jesus is your only hope and secure foundation!

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!
