Before I Slip Away (Poetry by GalaxyRat)

Updated on June 3, 2017

GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

Before I slip away,

I want to see Jesus descend from the sky,

to rescue the saints

and leave behind the blind.

Before I slip away,

I want to see my children at last read

the Bible,

and begin, on the path of God, to tread.

Before I slip away,

I want to skydive and ride planes,

do all the things before I die,

so at least I'd feel the fading pain.

Before I slip away,

I want to see my grandchildren,

so I can see the beautiful faces

of my lost kin.

Maybe,

before I slip away,

I can spread the Gospel,

before, in my grave, I lay.

      Not my best! But, worth a try to write Christian-based poems. Hope you enjoyed this, and, what do you want to do before you die?
