Every great dream begins with the dreamer -Harriet Tubman
Our journey had advanced;
Our feet were almost come
To that odd fork in Being’s road,
Eternity by term.
Our pace took sudden awe,
Our feet reluctant led.
Before were cities, but between,
The forest of the dead.
Retreat was out of hope, –
Behind, a sealed route,
Eternity’s white flag before,
And God at every gate.
There is one more thing you have to do for me…
Hey, you can’t keep me from getting drunk…
I need this drink, and you know it true,
In this love, that I leave for you,
Where do you think we are…?
We are at your brother’s funeral…
You have to do something for me…
You so…have to forgive yourself…
Forgive yourself… for the person who you are…
And believe in the life, that you have become…
For you are a good person…
Who I wish I had so become…
But in the end, the most important thing to except is…
That… as so alone you might feel,
And how painful it may be,
With the help of those around you,
You will get through this to,
This much…I believe in you,
And you know…In god that I trust…it’s true…
I give this day that I leave to you…
As you know… that I’m so blue…
As today…we will bury you…
Footprints in the Sand- Mary Stevenson
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied, “The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand, is when I carried you.”
