Miss Me – And Let Me Go!

January 15, 2011

Now that I’ve come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me

Remember the fun and the laughs we had

Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little – but not too long

And not with your head bowed low

Remember the love we all still share

Miss me – And let me go!

This is a journey we all will take

Each of us takes it alone

It is all part of the good Lord’s plan

A step on the road to home

When you feel lonely or sick at heart

Seek out the friends we know;

Ease your sorrow by doing good deeds

Miss me – And let me go!

Looking for the Sunrise

June 1, 2008

Looking for the Sunrise

I’m not looking for the sunset,
As the swift years come and go;
I am looking for the sunrise,
And the golden morning glow,
Where the light of heaven’s glory
Will break forth upon my sight,
In the land that knows no sunset,
Nor the darkness of the night.

                                 I’m not going down the pathway
                                  Toward the setting of the sun,
                                 Where the shadows ever deepen
                                   When the day at last is done;
                                   I am walking up the hillside
                              Where the sunshine lights the way,
                                    To the glory of the sunrise
                                    Of God’s never-ending day.

                                 I’m not going down, but upward,
                                     And the path is never dim,
                                For the day grows ever brighter
                                     As I journey on with Him.
                                So my eyes are on the hilltops,
                                  Waiting for the sun to rise,
                                  Waiting for His invitation
                              To the home beyond the skies.

                               Albert Simpson Reitz, June 1953
