For my Dad! I know you're dancing with the angels now, with your yellow plaid jacket on ...
Ready, Set - Go Home
by Jody R Goode

My blessed one, itís almost time -
Are you ready to come Home to Me?
Oh, no - not just yet.
So much to do; so many to love.
Are You sure itís me - me You seek?
My blessed one, yes, itís you - you I seek.
Through your love and through your laughter; through your life,
youíve blessed My Heart.
Now I long to have you here - to have you here with Me.
You simply do not know how much youíve done;
The bounty of hearts your love has filled -
many whose feet shall follow after the path your feet have tread.
If you donít come Home, how will they follow
and find their way to Me?
My blessed one, do set your affairs in place, but -
There is one more favor I ask before you leaveÖ
Will you bear the burden of pain, all for the sake of My Holy Name?
I know this trial youíll face with great courage and with strength.
A legacy left and neíer forgotten.
My blessed one, you have My Word -
I shall stand by those youíve left behind.
Yes, I promise - both in Spirit and in Truth -
as youíve loved and cared for them, so shall I until the end.
So My blessed one, will you now come Home - come Home to be with Me?
I think Iím readyÖ
All things are setÖ
Yes itís time, I shall go Home - go Home to be with You.
Good-bye for now, my dear loved ones,
but, do remember this, my final noteÖ
I shall never be but a heartbeat away,
for Home is as itís always been,
that place your heart has found its rest,
that special place to hang its coat.
