Poem: If I should die, before I wake! video...

Updated on March 12, 2012

I pray that God my soul to take!

Here on this earth

where I live my life

I am not one to be

blaming anyone for

anything that I feel

should be mine,

or anything that

I had missed !

Or what I believe

am missing for myself.

On no one but myself!

I am not in this world

so that any man should

try to stop my way

It may just be my time.

I believe that today

Any thing can happen

A man on the street

in the area where I live

could this day just snap.

He is blaming the system

For the life he's living

His bullets missed it's mark

It was dark and it was my time

he popped me, gone missing.

Regardless of whatever

the situation might be!

If I am here and for a reason

for whatever reason

I am not able to do that

which I believe I am here

to do while I am around

in your presence.

I should easily know

that which I supposed to .

So I am sorry my brother

So I am sorry my sister

I think you had me wrong.

I dn't go about blaming

finding fault with anyone.

Excuse me but I hope

I am getting through to you

My life is a journey

is not by any means

A destination to drop!

The Most High said

That I must continue

on my way no time to stop.

if I am around them

knowing my belief i

s truly all that I have got

To leave would be

no sweat off my back.

That’s when I know

It’s my time to run.

I am the one to choose

See the Most High God

he didn’t make excurse

when dealing with Satan.

Will be my fight to lose

For the sins of mankind

He sent his only son to die

on that cross on Calvary

Guaranteeing all that

Thy will be done be free.

Yeah though I walk

Through to valleys

of the shadows of death

I fear no evil

The only way to be

My brother’s keeper

Is to love my brother

Show him how to live

Help him to join in

Mankind fight against Evil.

Don’t leveve him alone

fighting, and slipoing

in that wicked evil's mudd

knowing we fight not against

Mere flesh and blood!I

If I should Die, before I wake!

      Are you sure your G/Mom is not my Mother? I hope it brings you a smile, as I am smiling ,because she sound exactly like my Mother. lol.

      I only spoke about you twice in writing some hours ago, And I give God praise , because you were the first to say something specific about my mom and someone again last night . So I wanted to send along something. Today is a special day, and you know what they say if you show up a certain time span between thoughts! So be prepared to a very long retirement. You heard it here.

      Thanks for such great comment and being part of the greatness of this day.

      Sincere thanks and have a great opf whatever's left of this beautiful day. It's raining down this side but that doesn't make it not beautiful. I know of many who will collect their $3 Mil lottery prize in thunder starm and call it the greatest day.

      Hello Sky - Wow! I really liked that one and I totally agree with your message and philosophy. If we are right with our Heavenly Father, then we are ready for whatever comes. Not saying we are eager to die, but we are ready to die, just as we are ready to live.

      Decades and decades ago when I was a little girl, my maternal grandmother used to say prayers with me at night and most times it was, "If I should die before I wake."

      It made me feel calm and protected then , even though I didn't understand it like I do today. Great poem...and thanks for the journey down memory lane. Blessings. Theresa SHARING

      Thank you very much Rose.I believe since you usually can't make then up and and most of us don't ask for them to invade our minds,and they always seems to bring us something of interest, we always want to know what they mean. Then we must look harder to see the relativity to us. I love dreaming of my mother , I am the first to call and tell her, and she love to interpret.

      Keep those motherly dreams going Rose and I am glad you like this one and it bought great memories.

      Voted up and awesome. Took me miles away. Reminded me of my dream which I truly believe was an out of body type of experience and I truly found my mom upon a bench up above the clouds of course I couldn't go any farther. I had been feeling bad that night and so I sat down in front of her and put my head into her lap and she stroked my hair and comforted me. And we had this conversation - I said that I felt so bad and was afraid I'd die. Mom laughed and said silly of course some day you will but not now and not for a long time yet. I woke up feeling like a new person. It's experiences like these that keep me on the path of faith. God bless.

      Voted up and all across but funny. Sky, this is seriously deep poetry. Wow, what an awesome poem. I remember saying this prayer and I still say it today. That first line gets me. Everything you say is perfect, just the way it is. Nothing left out or added could make it better or worse. Just perfect.

      Thanks you "AE" I don't know how the area where you live was like as night but like I said in the4 other story when my dad decided it was time for me to go fetch the water.

      The moon was our main source of light at night and the stories we loved best was Dracula, and haunted stories ,but we knew the way well to get home as soon as it was starting to get dark.

      Those were the times when home was Heaven and there was nothing better than , my father's stories, Then it would be broken up by my mom because after my dad had a few , he can go all night with or without his juice.

      But I had to learn those prayers. Gentle Jesus meek and my. and if I should die before.

      I will write to the best of my ability back in the day, before I die.

      Thanks "AE" Bless.

      Thank you brethren Frank. We are here for such a short time and , so many may believe if I should die before I wake, them I die ! Well it's not life that . It's not so . If someone offer you everything for nothing, you won't take it for you calling yourself smart, so listen and listen quite carefully , why would you let them offer you , nothing for everything ? Why are we here?

      Always a pleasure brethren Frank.

      Nothing from nothing leaves nothing! Something from nothing leaves nothing ! something from everything leaves

      Everything or something? Everything from everything should leave everything? I know why the line scare you! don't tell me am nothing, but I bet you heard it before.

      God is great,I found the answer.
