Publishing God's Wisdom and procliaming His kingdom
When I am laid down,
After I had gone to the beyond.
From this earth all ended.
If there are tears in menís eyes
Or the pains in their hearts
I do not know,
But Iím laid down.
Then their come the pastor,
If There may be need for this.
Reading from the scripture,
And commit to the mother earth
This case of mine!
On menís life, what a loss
Or the praise they will sing?
Whose life have I touched
in which way have I done this
By a short or long living of mine?
Will the heaven
Sing for joy
To the target,
"The man in that grave
He is true".
Or heaven will roar in mourning,
"To the target, he is a failure!"



Lives have been touched
By this life of mine
Sorrow had been dispelled.
From many eyes,
By my deeds and labour:
I have wiped many tears
And given to men
The Lordís hope.
In songs and prayers
Generations may be consoled
And by counsel and contribution
Had not misled any one.
Then at my funeral
The heaven should celebrate
That this soul, in this grave
Has made the heavenís joy,
Bring peace to men in sorrow,
Godís will fulfilled,
And to the targeted purpose
The man in this grave
is true!



what joy or sorrow
I have given to heaven
Or men in this world
What problems Iíve created or
Or solution I have discovered or formulated?
What will the conclusion of this my life
At the end of short or long living on earth
be?
To the target
This man is a failure,
Or this man is true!

Yes, Boaji, that's how most believers would want to be remembered. Let's hope when your turn comes, your fellow believers will be in colourful clothes, smiling, dancing and singing. Isn't that what a Christian funeral should be like?

Thank you for sharing this. It's something we probably all think about, or definitely SHOULD. I've written a poem about it, and have recently contemplated posting it on this site. Thanks, again.
