A LONGING FOR

I am leaving a legacy not

Appreciated yet.

Might forever be unknown

But by my mindset—

.

.

It is not all that important,

What is important I know

Is when I get to heaven,

I have left something to show—

.

.

My kin, grandchildren, great grand

Children, when I am gone.

Something worthwhile they can read

Lift them up than upon!

.

.

Something reminiscent of

Jesus and His love,

Reminiscent of the Scripture

That lifts our thoughts above—

.

.

The mundane, the frivolous

In contemplation, true,

Of that which satisfies more

Than what we can do!

.

.

I do not want them visiting some

Shrine made from a grave,

I am alive, I am up here!  Not

Down there, not some slave—

.

.

To the chemistry of change

Nothing down there can remind

You of what it is like in heaven

Or what I have left behind.

.

.

Sure, it was pleasant do not you know,

The church that used to be

The many friends, the fellowship,

The love of family…

.

.

Yes, of course, I miss all that

But it is permanent up here!

And all our songs are new now

With no semblance left of fear!

.

.

Many times I can remember,

When the fellowship below

Left a fragrant taste of heaven

Made me long for do not you know.

.

.
