I'm Only Going Home


On an unknown day,
In an unknown moment,
He will call my name.


When upon a breeze,
Like the autumn trees,
My soul, He will reclaim.


And on that day,
There may be no goodbyes-
Or time for one last kisses.


But I pray that they,
In their time of grieving,
Remember my final wishes.


For I wish for them,
Untold blessings.
Laughter more than tears.


Hope and faith,
And steadfast love.
And joy, much more than fears.


For when I leave here,
It won't be a heartache,
For on earth, I'll no more roam.


But be happy for me,
From all pain, I'll be free,
For I'm only going Home.
