The Deliverance of Death
My dear husband, you finally left.
I am glad to see you go.
My heart is not bereft,
I still love you so,
But I am filled with gladness and joy
For I know you are finally at rest.
Jesus has welcomed you home,
Reunited you with your mom and dad that
I know you have missed so much.
Your body is whole.
Your mind is made clear.
You are able to use your hands
Which you could not do while living here.
Your struggle to understand
Why God made you is done.
Now you know what part
You had in His plan.
You no longer suffer. You no longer hurt.
Your feelings of having no value
are no longer there.
Jesus loves you.
Now this you know.
I find comfort knowing you are home
With Jesus our Savior
Who is sitting on His throne.
For you and for me
Because I love you, you know
Death has been a deliverance.
Husband, enjoy your new home.
My husband is still alive. He hasn't left me yet and I hope he won't for many years to come. He promised me a lifetime and I am not ready for that to be over with yet. He deals with a myriad of physical and mental ailments. He has bi-polar disorder and also benign essential tremors. These tremors mimic Parkinson's Disease. After reading the challenge from PhillyDreamer to write a poem about death, I was thinking about how much my husband suffers in his life because of the different problems he has. While I would miss him terribly after his death, I know it would be sweet to know he is no longer suffering. My husband has confessed Christ as his Savior so I know he would be in heaven after his death.
