An Angel

Last night as I lay in my bed
An angel appeared and said
Your life will soon end
I am sent as a friend
To a new kingdom soon you will be led

Say goodbye to all those you hold dear
Tell all they must not shed a tear
For your passing will be
Liberating and free
With my lead you will not have fear

In life you have suffered too much
Soon you will walk without need of a crutch
In the kingdom to come
You won’t limp you will run
With the help of the lords gentle touch

So I wait for the day to draw nigh
Though I know lots of people will cry
With happiness in my heart
I will gladly depart
Heavens waiting there for me to try

The angel at last has drawn near
He offers a new life so clear
With a silent prayer 
I climb the golden stair
Halleluiah the angels all cheer

    Really thought provoking and a clear vision of what will be there for you on the other side, I often lament over such things and we all come up with different ideas maybe to appease our selves but your idea is refreshing and liberating in actual practice.

    How reassuring this would be if we could all be visited by an angel when our end is near...terrific write and love the flow of these set of limericks. Hugs
