I Want to Take You With Me

Updated on June 29, 2011
Source

Sometimes during our struggles here on earth even though we are in no imminent danger, we can't help but think of our passing and leaving the ones we love and cherish so dearly. We are sometimes afraid of the unknown and yet somehow come to peace with what is to become of our souls and inner spirit.

There are the thoughts of peace, no pain, no regrets, forgiveness, and the cleansing of our very souls. We often want to take others with us for the thought of leaving them behind is more than we can bear. We want them to be relieved of the pain and suffering that they will go through and then remember the joys of life, happiness, and lessons they have yet to learn.

I want to take you with me are my thoughts when struggling with these very difficult times in life put to verse. I hope you enjoy it and realize it is only my second or third attempt at writing poetry

I Want to Take You With Me


I want to take you with me
Through the clouds and stars above

I want to take you with me
To a place of eternal peace and hundreds of white turtle doves

I want to take you with me
But thou are not ready and can not go

I want to take you with me
For he who has chosen said the gates would surely overflow

I want to take you with me
It is my time and you have not finished your journey here

I want to take you with me
Please don’t cry think of our lives together and I have nothing left to fear

I want to take you with me
Though you will be in my heart and soul forever

I want to take you with me
Where pain is no more not even thought of never

I want to take you with me
So our souls can intertwine as one

I want to take you with me
Where our sins are all forgiven as if they somehow had been undone

I want to take you with me
For it is now time for me to go

I want to take you with me
I will watch over you and that you will always know

I want to take you with me
I must not be selfish, let you go and say good bye

I want to take you with me
Please know that I will love you forever and no longer afraid to die

      Hi Peggy You are so right about our time here being so short! I'm sure your mother felt the same way and wanted you with her, but knew your journey here was not finished. Thank you for taking the time to share and your wonderful comments and votes. Take Care

      This really touched me! I love to think that my dear mother would have felt the same as you expressed in your poem...but it was her time to leave and not yet mine. Our earthly lives are short. Voted up and beautiful.

      Beautiful Charlu,

      I have been away from here for the last week but as soon as I get back on here I realise how much I've missed reading so many poems and this is one brilliant poem.

      beautiful, touching and everything else.

      I vote this one up/awesome/beautiful.

      Here's to many more hubs to share.

      Take care

      Eiddwen.
