The Dearly Departed

The Dearly Departed

Is it true,
That when our time is done
We take a last breath
And begin again?

Our beliefs are instilled in us
Some early, some late.
But I think that we all,
Ask this question of fate.

Will I close my eyes knowing,
That when opened I’ll see Him?
Or will I fight that last breath,
Holding on in great fear.

I have faith that the latter
will probably not be,
The way I go out,
But I can’t seem to see.

When a person on earth,
Passes over that line,
There’s no way of knowing,
If his journey will be mine.

So I guess I just have
to keep Believing what I know.
That Jesus will guide me,
When it’s my time to go.

I’ll see a great light.
And a stairway going up.
My family and friends will shout,
“Hey, hurry up!”

Then I’ll greet them with joy.
Such great joy and gladness.
And I’ll know that those left behind,
Will not feel sadness.

For I am not in heaven.
I am here in my house.
Thinking all of these things through,
But I really don’t doubt

I have faith
that my end on this earth
Will begin,
The life I’ve been promised
From the greatest

And who am I to doubt,
Any words that so clearly,
Define me, my life,
I’ll just hang on and serve thee.

Cause I think there are people,
Who sit on the fence.
Wondering yes, wondering no,
Thinking who, what and when.

So if I keep all my promises,
And always walk that walk.
Those confused will hear truth
and not the ones talking the talk.

So my friends,
As I close this long monologue
I’ve started,
I will say a little prayer
For our dearly departed.

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
