Brother Death Poem

I lost my brother in 2003 to aids. Before he got sick we was the best of friends, we shopped together, went out, gave each other advice about many things. When he passed away a part of me left. Things will never be the same.

It's Time To Come Home

© Artrease Thompson
My life is not over
I just started a new birth
but I learned many things
while here on earth.

I learned to trust God
and in all that you do
he will forgive your sins
because he never stops loving you.

I learned to feel secure an never alone,
I learned God has a place for me
and it's my heavenly home.
I had a destiny an it was to be free.

One day I heard someone calling my name
Derrick it's time to come with me.
It's time to come home my child for I am your heavenly king
Enter my gates with praise an rejoice as my angels sing.
Don't worry about your family for they will not be left in grief.

Now since you all know where I'm going I won't say goodbye.
Because we'll meet again,
I'll just say "see you in heaven".
To all my family and friends.
