last breath, final thought

Breathing on a respirator with a plastic cover around my bed
Wondering if in the morning I’ll be alive or I’ll be dead.
Family members can’t see me or give me moral support
Because I could infect them – so this thought I must abort.
Memories of my life are flashing thru my mind , and of
All the beauties that I’ve come to love – i will now leave behind.
I will not see their tears or the pains that they’ll go through
Or be able to comfort them with the words “ I LOVE YOU “
But like a turtle our bodies are just a shell – it’s what’s inside.’ WHERE OUR LIVES DO DWELL “
I’m going to another place where there is no pain
And happiness will come upon me like the falling rain.
I have a calmness that has overcome me and death is not what
I feared it to be.
There is a tranquility which is hard to explain – like floating
On a calm ocean with the sky above and the waters below
And you know which way you’ll go !
There are no signs of wind, rains or storms around
Nothing that can pull you down , and that’s when you know
You’re heaven bound.
I’m sorry I must leave you but GOD needs me now
But in your times of trouble you know I’ll be around.
