TO SPEND ETERNITY WITH YOU

I knew this would be the farewell to the life
That I had known on earth.
Although I was aware of what was ahead of me,
I felt assured that thoughts of you would sustain me
Through the torture I was about to endure.
As I was beaten, as every lash tore open my skin,
I had thoughts of you etched in my mind.
As the thorns of the crown pierced my skin,
Every drop of blood that trickled down my face
Only make me think of you more.
Just as I felt I was drained of all strength,
The cross was placed upon My back.
I can still remember that the heaviness of it
Was almost more than I could bare.
The sting as the cross rubbed
Against my open wounds is something I will never forget,
Yet with every step of that arduous journey to the top of the hill,
I pictured your face.
As my hands and feet were nailed to the cross,
With every strike of the hammer on the spikes,
I imagined you in heaven with me.
Hanging there on the cross for all to see,
Feeling their rejection to the core of my soul,
As I looked among the crowd at all of those faces,
Still in my mind, I saw you.
I recall the agony each time my lungs filled with air and emptied again,
Yet with each breath, My thoughts of you never ceased.
The most excruciating pain of all
Was in those moments of separation from my beloved Father.
Even so, I would do it all again
To spend eternity with you.
