Cry For Me No More

Cry for me no more.
For I have entered God’s heavenly door.
It is the place of true rest,
Don’t forget to do your best.
I have found peace with the Creator.
It is now up to you to one day take this journey, too.
Fear not, it is a place where all things are made new.
“Forgive us of our sins” was my chant.
Don’t even think, “I can’t make it in.”
You can win. Cry for me know more.
For I have entered God’s heavenly door.
–Casilda Woodward, by permission

Darkness Fell

I ask The Lord to be with me,
As  I walked through the dell,
Then came the dark of night ,
And the darkness quietly fell.

Then I trembled in great fear,
As the darkness hung low,
Then I heard The Father say,
"The darkness is my shadow."

Death Is A Door

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall;
On gentle hinges it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call.

Along the linted are green leaves,
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill.

There is nothing to trouble any heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door
In an old wall.
–Nancy Byrd Turner


Don't spend too much
time in mourning.
Tears are for the sad.  I left
to be with Jesus, and
this should make you glad.
Don't waste your
hours in grieving. 
No need to feel distress. 
I'm tired of life's frustrations,
and had to get some rest. 
Don't vex yourself with
questions, or try to reason why. 
Life here for me was ended;
it came my time to die.
Don't lose the love I gave you;
feed it with your care.
Grow it with devotion and
spread it everywhere.
Don't fret because my leaving
came in such a way.
We'll have another meeting,
in God's Eternal Day!
