Beware

If only my casket had windows.
If I had the power to see;
I'd take a quick look toward Heaven,
and enter my final plea.

O Lord, You know I'm a sinner.
Have mercy, O Lord, on me.
I seem to be a forgotten son,
this casket has no Key.

It seemed an answer would not come,
but much to my surprise;
this thought came flashing to my mind,
"It's right before your eyes."

"The Key is where you left it,
just remember if you can;
the person that you loaned it to,
but not a helping hand."

"Remember the girl on crutches,
or the dirty old man in the park?
The one with little enough to eat?
The one with a broken heart?"

"You might ask the man that had it,
as you helped him on the road;
by showing him a shorter path;
but carried not his load."

"The Key was offered many times,
in trials of the past;
the place you have to find it,
is the place you left it last."

"Truth and Love and Charity,
will bring you home to me;
but first you must repent your sin,
for Jesus is the Key."

So listen very closely,
to this story that I tell;
Without the Key of Life, my friend,
Your destination's Hell.

Nice one, my friend.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Maranatha!

Jl,
..Thanks.
..After I wrote this poem, I didn't
sleep right for a long time. I kept
waking up, hearing voices. Now I
stay awake waiting for them to call
my name.
