Before I Leave

Updated on September 15, 2009

Before I Leave

Before I leave and it's time to go

I want to be a blessing

Even to people I don't know

If you are hungry let us share some of my food

If you are thirsty let me give you a drink of something that is good

No need to be cold

I have a jacket you may have

If you are homeless no need to sleep on the street

Come to my home I will share my heat

If you have sorrow or maybe some pain

Come on over and laugh maybe take a walk in the rain

If you feel lonely and think you have not a friend

Remember I'm here just around the bend

These are the things I want to do

Before my dear Lord

I come to live with you

I may not be rich

But that is okay with me

For it doesn't take money to buy love,compassion and sympathy

These are things that you taught me

My father above

But my favorite lesson was learning to love

      Tracy, I just got kicked out of my apartment, can I come stay with you? haha, only kidding. Now here is a poem that sounds more like a prayer. We need to hear a little kindness these days.

      thanglynn07 Thank you I'm glad you like my poetry. I was once so sick it weakened my strength and my mind. I have liked writing poetry since I was a child but I hadn't done it for a few years. Years of suffering and torment. But now I am some what better and I don't want to loose who I am because then the illness will have won and I can't let that happen. I will fight till the end for the life God has given. And I'm sure you have heard if it doesn't kill you then it will only make you stronger. I will pray for you and I hope that you will find comfort and strength also. God bless you and keep you in loving care.

      Tracy...I truly admire you. I wish there were more people like you. Someone who truly care about making a difference in the world. You may not have much but you offer it all. Not just to loved ones but strangers as well. And I truly love you for that. You have so much inner strength and such a tremendous amount of love and compassion. I am deeply touched by your strength. You are such a strong individual. You are such a beautiful person...Thank you. Thank you so much for being you. I love your poetry. It speaks straight to the heart...You are an angel sent from above. Thank you...
