Don’t Cry For Me

Considering living and dying

I know there will be some crying,

But just not for me

Just for yourself you see.

Living your life on earth

Begins with your birth,

Sometimes you are full of mirth

And sometimes you show your worth.

Living your life with Jesus by your side

Means life can be a long or short ride,

Mine was shorter that it should have been,

But in the end I did win.

When you take Jesus as your savior

It ensures He opens the door

For you to go to Heaven

And stay there ever more.

So just don’t cry for me

Cause Jesus paid my fee

Now I’m up in Heaven

I had to go when He beckoned.

I’ll see you someday once again

Just not sure exactly when.

I’m here doing really good

I would show you if I could.

So don’t cry for me.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
