Spiritual Poem about Death

Poem About Being With God After Death

Three years ago my sister-in-law was diagnosed with cancer. She fought for three long, hard years with the odds against her all the way. In the end of August 2011, my sister-in-law gave up. She was too weak to carry on. She passed away on September 1st, less than two weeks after deciding she could no longer live like she was. I loved my sister-in-law. I wrote this for her the day before her Celebration of Life, and read it to the family and friends attending the service.

Remember Me

Published: July 2015

Remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am with God, I need you to know.
He called my name, and I went to see
If the voice I heard was speaking to me.
He took my hand, we walked along
The road to heaven, where I belong.
The angles sang so sweet and clear.
They sang of love and that Jesus is near.
I felt his touch, I saw his face,
I knew in an instant I was in his grace.
He spoke to me, I heard him say,
You are home now child, you have found your way.
So remember me when you hear the wind blow.
I am home now with God, I need you to know.

I was once was ill that I thought I was dead or felt dead. Being in a coma makes you feel dead, but God, in his good graces, said He's not ready for me, so He brought me back to face life's journey. I just want to be left alone to see where life takes me next, but on the other hand I don't want to be alone forever. God is always there but sometimes you need someone else on your level to accompany you on life's journey. God sits there and watches you then tries to guide you through perseverance. Let Him light my way.
