A Tribute To A Parent
Death, thou art my friend, not foe--you've set this mortal free.
by Brenda Hayes
For trials and tribulations now no longer challenge me.
Yet, great have been the blessings of life here on the earth.
God's loving care I have known from the moments of my birth.
He beckons "Come, follow me", I have no thought of fear.
I answer now, "I'm ready Lord", as I feel Him near.
And now I find I'm ready to leave mortality,
And live in heaven's realm above--for all eternity.
