Collaborating in the Clouds
Dear Lord, so often I hear Your most loving voice
Are You calling me home or giving me a choice?
The neuropathy is a challenge for I gave you
But on your path to heaven, I will see you through
Please don’t judge me by the many tears I have shed
I am weak; You are strong. By Your strength I am led
Gentle lady, rest assured I’ll not judge in haste
Only on the love you gave will your fate be based
How can I know I’ve given enough to others
Love for humanity, all sisters and brothers?
Your kind acts have far exceeded your mistakes
The love web you spun, I’ll be sure it never breaks
Will my parents and husband be waiting for me
When I come to the end of this lifelong journey?
They are here with Me now, and John sends you a kiss
They wait for you to join in their eternal bliss
