Itís utter chaos, crinkling down,
The ash of all my dreams;
A fallen sky of glass and steel
Erected to deceive.

When what I thought I wanted,
Achieved with no small ease,
Is put against eternity
It shrivels in the breeze.

The accolades ring empty,
And swiftly die away.
The praise is what I wanted;
And now it fades with day.

YOUR praise is what I wanted,
But now your lips are cold.
And with your death I clearly see
Eternity unfold.

For what you sought was better
Than what I have pursued.
You sought the praise of heaven;
A mind in Christ, renewed.

A life poured out for others,
With little thought for self,
That won the final, ageless prize
Of life with God in death.

And wins, down through the ages
The joy of being known
By all those whom his life has touched
In heaven, all come home.

May my life turn the corner
To see the world as Christ;
To love with all the ardor
With which He gave His life;

To use the path Godís given
To glorify His name,
And somehow through His mercy
His blessing to attain.

So I may be united
Again with you in heavín,
Where we will sing, ďAll glory to
The Maker of all men!Ē

Very touching and thought provoking.

This is a beautiful tribute to a saintly loved one. Made me think of my grandmother and how wonderful it will be to see her in heaven. Thank you.

great job! poetry baffles me. I'm in awe of those who can make it happen

This is beautiful poem Geri and shows the transition of learning through the example of a loved one, to do things for God's glory instead of our own, We receive our reward in Heaven. May He truly say Well Done. Very well written.

It is my daily prayer that when people look at my life they see Christ looking back; for me there is no greater goal worth striving to achieve. Your poem is a wonderful tribute to one who has finished and won the final race and now rests in the Arms of our Savior from a job well done.
