I see God before me

As I lay down to die I can see my soul being taken before my eyes. I see God before me. I feel the sun shining on me. The warmth invades my body. No more feeling of cold surroundings. I smell the spring flowers from a field. I see the mountains with their peaks. I see God before me I hear the waters flow so peacefully. I see a lake that is so calm with the mirror of a blue sky That is above me. I see God before me. I am at peace and have no needs. I am at happiness made just for me. I feel no pain and have no illness. I hear the birds singing just for me. I see God before me. I am lead by the hand through the field of harmony. An Angel guides me with love. A light blinds me. I hear a symphony of Angels. God is not before me now. God is with me.

Wonderful work but use God's name which is derived from the English tetra gram JHVH is Jehovah.

This gives new meaning to “free verse”. We are only truly free when God is with us.
