Dorothy

by Susan Southwick.........................................

I heard a voice call out to me, As they stood beside my bed
I heard a voice call out to me but it was not in my head

I heard it loudly, and heard it clear, And as I rose to stand
I heard a voice call out to me, "Come, this way, take my hand."

I heard a voice call out to me, I did not feel any pain
I felt completely well again, And then I heard Him say,

"It is time now, Dorothy. You have been a faithful child.
And all will be much better." The voice became so mild.

I saw a star of light, just ahead of me,
When I looked into the light I saw my family
I saw my aunts and uncles, mama and daddy, too
I saw friends from my past, I barely even knew!
I heard a voice call out to me
But, really, must I go?
I do not know why
I have lingered so

I heard a voice call out to me, It was my daughter and my son
And I wanted to stay with them, but my time on Earth was done.
I heard a voice call out to me, and as I turned to go
He said my children will live on, But, trust me, they will know.

I heard a voice call out to me
I wanted to go back
But all life's treasures seemed so small
when holding Jesus' hand

I heard a voice call out to me
As he put His hand in mine
His precious warmth surrounded me
And will for all of time

Comments would be appreciated by the author, Susan Southwick
