"My Last Day"

Our Redeemer Lutheran School
St. Louis City, MO

I lay awake on my hospital bed
Everyone around me is sad
Sitting next to me, my son and my wife
The doctor said it was the end of my life
My daughter was crying
She knew I was dying
My wife said it would be alright
She said I should go to the light
“I love you,” I said with a smile,
“And I’ll see my family in a while”
Then the light came to me
My family was with me
With everyone I ever knew
People gone long ago
Elvis Presley
Vincent Van Gogh
There is a throne
Huge and made of stone
And sitting there,
An ancient being
I knew what I was seeing
I walked around
My forever home
Then Elizabeth II
Offered me a scone
